Two years ago, King Mohammed VI enshrined the equality of the sexes in Morocco's constitution. As the number of educated women grows, so too has the number of successful businesses run by women. Myra and Saida Chab have opened their own restaurant in Marrakesh.
The sisters now employ 40 people at "Al Fassia" and cater to both Moroccans and tourists. Women hold all the key positions, in the kitchen, in service and in management. The restaurant is so successful that it has become a training center for women in the hospitality industry.
