Aziz Najat is part of the very limited 15% of women who are economically active population in rural areas of Morocco. She has crossed the threshold of her house, has gone out to work to generate resources and streamline her environment. Her daily struggle for autonomy is an act of self-empowerment within a traditional Islamic Society that predominantly confines women roles and activities to the domestic sphere. Najat and other women are facing with dignity, effort and the collaboration of several international organizations, their difficult social and geographical environment, defying with new proposals the desert and some of their traditions.
