‘We need privacy!’ Moroccan Women Demand Ladies-Only Beach

A group of women in Morocco launched an unprecedented campaign calling for a beach reserved exclusively for women in the city of Tangier.

On their Facebook page, the campaigners announced that they will officially demand from the authorities on August 30 a women-only section from the “large” beach to swim “in conformity with Islamic legislations as Islam prohibit women to show parts of their body in public.”

The request has sparked a heated debate on the social network, with many comments supporting the request, arguing that there are many miles of vacant coastline in Tangier.

Here are some comments that can be read in their Facebook’s account:
