Ramadan and harassment: The right to the streets is a fundamental right for both women and men

HIBAPRESS-RABAT

“Afine a Zine”, “manchoufoukch”, “Al Ghzal ndirou chi haja? »…. and many other phrases that women of all ages and from all social strata hear daily, in various public and private places in the Kingdom.

Some consider public space to be limited to the street, but in fact it is all shared public spaces, such as workplaces, stores, entertainment venues and others.

These spaces, which have become fertile ground for the harassment of women, even in the Holy Month of Ramadan, have become hell for some of them and suspicious places, because they feel uncomfortable and little safe due to the phenomenon of harassment, which has spread in different ways, from verbal harassment to physical harassment.

Verbal harassment often escalates to physical harassment, where women experience attempted sexual assault
