AbstractThe author focuses on the war on terrorism in Morocco. The author reports that after a terrorist attack in the city of Casablanca in 2003, the Moroccan government took steps to approach terrorism in a similar fashion to the U.S. According to the author, the discourse of the war is connected to discourses of democratization and modernity, which has an impact on the relationship of Moroccan women to the war. The author discusses feminist and Islamist women's groups who appropriate the discourse of the war to advocate for women's rights and gender issues. The author addresses such topics as feminist studies on the war and international relations, resistance to the war, and rhetoric.
