ISIS Centre for Women and Development

ISIS Centre Logo

The ISIS Centre for Women and Development (ICWAD), founded by a group of Moroccan academics and researchers, undertakes a range of activities supporting women, including research on gender and empowerment, promoting Moroccan women in scientific research positions, and sparking intercultural dialogue inside and outside Morocco.

The AWDF has supported IWAD to organise a roundtable on the anthology Women Writing Africa – The Northern Region. Over the past decade, the project has compiled women’s testimonies in song, letters and texts to demonstrate how African women negotiate agency and control over their own lives.
