Dressing for Women While in Morocco

If you are a woman visiting Morocco here are a few tips that you could use:

  • Morocco is a very liberal country, despite its location.
  • Women in Morocco do not usually wear hijab(headscarf). However, if you are inclined to the culture you could dress in one.
  • In as much as Morocco is liberal, one should not expose too much skin while in the country. This includes shorts, low-neck tops.
  • Such kinds of clothing can be subjected to scrutiny and can lead to your discrimination.
  • During popular hammam(steam baths.) Women can be observed attending in their underwear or some go naked.
  • However, men are not allowed to go into hammams naked.
  • Women can be subjected to cat-calls and in case this occurs do not be afraid of asking for help from local women as such behavior is not welcomed kindly.
  • With that being said, avoid staying in dingy neighborhoods and hotels.
  • Make sure to do adequate research on your hotel and its environs before booking as women are vulnerable to attacks by local gangs
