Summary
Gender on the Market is a study of Moroccan women's expressive culture and the ways in which it both determines and responds to current transformations in gender role. In Morocco the last decade has seen a dramatic increase in women's public visibility and a major reorganization of the sexual division of labor. Beginning with women's emergence into what has been defined as the most paradigmatic of Moroccan male institutionsthe marketplace (suq) - the book elucidates how gender and commodity relations are experienced and interpreted in women's aesthetic practices
