King Mohammed VI calls for a reform of family code

King Mohammed VI called for a reform of the moudouwana, the Moroccan family law, in an address to the nation on the occasion of the 23rd anniversary of Throne Day in order to ensure the rights of all, both men and women.

The Sovereign claimed that the application on the ground had revealed some moudouwana restrictions that had prevented its best application.

Hassan II first modified this code in 1993. The Moroccan Parliament then revised it in February 2004 and King Mohammed VI promulgated it on October 10, 2004. It has made many demands for gender equality a reality.
