NYU Press

In this chapter, Ginger Feather discusses the rise in efforts to defend victims of child sexual abuse in Morocco. She describes how Najia Adib, a mother whose son was sexually abused in day care, lobbied the Moroccan government for stricter enforcement of laws against rape, especially rape of minors. She also raised awareness to break the historical taboo against reporting pedophilia in Moroccan society, which has often led to child sexual abuse cases being dismissed.

Keywords:   Morocco, child sexual abuse, pedophilia, Najia Adib, rape, taboo, minors
