PostSubject: On Women's day   Wed 8 Mar - 3:53

Hi everyone, sunny

I would like to write few words about the improvement of women's situation in Morocco since Mohammed VI became King in July 1999. First, in March 2000, for the first time in the country's history, King Mohamed VI appointed a female Royal Counselor. Second, he appointed a woman to head the National Office of Oil Research and Exploration in August 2000. Third, in September 2000, he confirmed the first-ever female ministerial appointment. Fourth, the King appointed the first woman to head the National Office of Tourism in October 2000. After that, in May 2002, The Moroccan Parliament approved a proposal, backed by the King, that sets aside 30 seats for the election of women in the national elections of September 2002, "the King thinks it's only fair to have women be largely represented in parliament since they constitute 50 per cent of the whole Moroccan population, and they should therefore be represented accordingly." said Mr. Mohamed Al Achaari, minister of culture.

Have a nice day. queen
