More on gender equality in Morocco

Continuing with yesterday's post about divorce in Western Sahara, here's the 2008 report on gender equality from Social Watch. Morocco is ranked only slightly higher than Pakistan, and is several notches down from Saudi Arabia. But then, how could a modernizing democracy like Morocco possibly compete with Saudi Arabia on women's rights? They're so enlightened there.

Like in many reports like this, Western Sahara's not included, probably because of the difficulty of separating trends in Morocco and the occupied territory.
