The Relative Status of Women and Men.
The status of men is higher than that of women. For the most part, women remain in private, domestic places. The man , the father represents the family outwards.
Worship in mosques is generally reserved for men and all Muslim leaders are male. Conservative Moroccans may not entertain mixed-sex groups. Within the family, the maintained virginity of a young woman is guarded, as it is vital to her acceptance for marriage.
On the other hand, male sexual activity before marriage is regarded as normal.
