Sexuality in Morocco and the Maghreb: An Absolutely Central Question to Society

Leila Slimani will present her latest book, Sex and Lies in Morocco, about the way women in Morocco live in what Slimani describes as “sexual misery”, unveiling the taboo of Muslim women’s sexuality in North Africa. She will be in conversation with Marie-Pierre Ulloa, author of the upcoming book, The New American Dream : From North Africa to California.
