OUR BODIES, OURSELVES PROJECT

Collectif Assiouar, a grassroots feminist organization in Rabat, Morocco, is working on adapting the sexual anatomy and body image chapters from “Our Bodies, Ourselves” into French and Arabic. The content will be posted to their blog, and the group will also publish 1000 copies as a “blook” — a print form of the blog. The booklets will also be posted here at the Our Bodies Ourselves website.

The group has been running workshops for women in genital anatomy, physiology, feminist self defense and menopause. In these workshops, the women use art to explore their lives and express their needs.

COMMUNITY ACTION & ACTIVISM

The need for health education in Morocco is tremendous. The country has a high rate of poverty and illiteracy, especially among women, and the laws are unfavorable to women. Abortion, non-marital sexual intercourse, and homosexuality are all forbidden. According to Collectif Assiouar, “In these circumstances, it is essential to offer information for women on our bodies and our health.”
