Islamic dating customs
Making it clear that you have the same standards as your Moroccan counterparts will usually deter all but the most insistent of men.
No Moroccan woman would tolerate being groped in the street for example, though they may often have to put up with catcalls and unwanted comments.
It is true that in cities Moroccan women wear short-sleeved tops and knee-length skirts (and may suffer more harassment as a result), and men may wear sleeveless T-shirts and above-the-knee shorts.
Clothes are particularly important: many Moroccans, especially in rural areas, may be offended by clothes that do not fully cover parts of the body considered “private”, including both legs and shoulders, especially for women.In villages and small towns, and even in the Medinas of large cities, many women still wear the veil and the street is strictly the man’s domain.Most Moroccan men still expect to marry a virgin, and most women would never smoke a cigarette or drink in a bar, the general presumption being that only prostitutes do such things.You’ll also see young people of both sexes hanging out together, though you can be sure that opportunities for premarital sex are kept to a minimum.
Even in traditional Moroccan societies, mountain Berber women, who do most of the hard work, play a much more open role in society, and rarely use a veil.
Different women seem to have vastly different experiences of sexual harassment in Morocco.
