Travail féminin et communauté villageoise au Maghreb in La communauté en Méditerranée.

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In addition to housekeeping and agricultural activities women are traditionally assigned responsability for certain jobs having to do with producing wickerwork, earthware and woolen goods. To do them, women form networks of mutual aid. Within these networks, certain tasks can be done for pay thus helping women in hardship to support their households. Whenever women contribute to the household's resources through the commercial practice of traditional jobs their submission to the family group apparently increases, thus reducing the freedom they had under the traditional mutual help system controlled by the women's community.
