Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic
Book for 1996
Gender on the Market is a study of Moroccan women's
expressive culture and the ways in which it both determines and
responds to current transformations in gender roles. Beginning with
women's emergence into what has been defined as the most
paradigmatic of Moroccan male institutions-the marketplace-the book
elucidates how gender and commodity relations are experienced and
interpreted in women's aesthetic practices.
Deborah Kapchan compellingly demonstrates that Moroccan women
challenge some of the most basic cultural assumptions of their
society-especially ones concerning power and authority.
