The rise of female healers in the Middle Atlas, Morocco.
In this article the author seeks an explanation for the remarkable rise of women healers in the Middle Atlas mountains in Morocco.
Two groups of women healers are being treated: the women herbalists in the marketplace and midwives in the rural region of a Berber tribe called Ait Abdi.
An attempt is made to understand the role of women in healing among the semi-nomadic Berber tribes in the past.
Apparently, indigenous Berber women as well as men played a minor part as reputed healers.
