A new petition was published last week in EMarrakech newspaper calling for the "transfer of Moroccan nationality from Moroccan women to their children," even though these children are born to a foreign father. The petition was initiated by the Women of Morocco project, wich aims at promoting women status in Moroccan society. This initiative is supported by the newspaper.
<i>EMarrakech</i> declared its full- support for the cause of improving women status in Morocco and strongly urged its readers to sign the petition. EMarrakech ended its call by declaring "let us acknowledge the citizenship of our children as a means of recognizing the citizenship of Moroccan woman."
