MUJERES JÓVENES DE ORIGEN MARROQUÍ EN MADRID. NEGOCIACIONES, ESTRATEGIAS Y RESISTENCIAS EN EL ÁMBITO FAMILIAR

Abstract
English
Spanish
This work analyzes the strategies and negotiations put into practice by a group of young women descending from Moroccan families living in Madrid, in order to confront control and pressures they experience in a migratory context. In such contexts, the preservation of ethnic identity and moral integrity is frequently seen as daughters' responsibility. For this reason, they confront some particular restrictions concerning their bodies, sexuality, dressing, movements or decision-making. Strategies vary: between acceptance and conformity with family norms and questioning, confrontation or rupture, there are intermediate possibilities of partial acceptance that facilitate personal achievements without questioning the familiar frames of reference, and without undermining parental power. This article will mainly analyze such processes.
