The Power of Cultural Normativity in Morocco: Disability & Sexuality as Examples
Culture has the ability to create sets of norms for everyone to follow. This article shows how discursive practices result in the alienation and disenfranchisement of certain members of society. Specifically, it examines how this happens in the way disability and sexuality are constructed in Morocco. Since development at all levels is contingent on accepting and including all members of society regardless of their differences, this article sheds light on the social and economic results of this exclusion. Alternatively, we recommend three solutions: raising awareness, regulation, and education.
