The hidden women of Morocco

Photographer Ruth Medjber writes about her trip to Morocco, a place she describes as a country of hot deserts, cold mountains, hidden women, underground bars, kind souls and rip off merchants.

I spent three weeks in Morocco, travelling by bus, sleeper train, taxi, camel and mule to see major cities and rural towns. I saw a lot during my trip but what I didn’t see a lot of was women.Visiting a farmers’ market one morning, I posted an Instagram video of the sights, capturing the mountains of fresh fruit and olives, the haunting screeches of chickens being decapitated and rows of camel heads on spikes. “Where are all the women?” one person commented.
