This book documents the development of museums as agents for women's empowerment in Morocco and how the existing programming and physical facilities of museums can be effectively used to benefit women culturally, politically, economically, and personally. Also, identified are the relevant issues of public/private space, discrimination, image reinterpretation, global awareness and gender equality.
