Dr. Kenza Oumlil Unveils Empowering Narratives of Sub-Saharan Migrant Women in Morocco's Digital Sphere
Al Akhawayn University proudly celebrates the latest achievement of Dr. Kenza Oumlil, one of our esteemed faculty members. Her recent article, "Counter-Narratives about Sub-Saharan Migrant Women in the Digital Public Sphere," published in the Arab Media & Society Journal, marks a significant contribution to the discourse on migrant social media activism and gender empowerment in Morocco.
In her article, Dr. Oumlil explores the impactful role of sub-Saharan migrant women in Morocco's digital public sphere. By focusing on counter-narratives, she highlights their civic engagement and how they challenge prevailing norms in media representation.
The research centers on Hassan Yemcheu's YouTube channel, where he shares content on behalf of the association "Planet Migrant." This case study is exceptional as it amplifies the voices of sub-Saharan migrant women in a narrative space primarily dominated by men.
Through Planet Migrant's videos, Dr. Oumlil uncovers diverse perspectives, ranging from migrant women's entrepreneurship to addressing issues like domestic violence. These narratives provide a fresh and essential outlook on the experiences of sub-Saharan migrant women in Morocco, contributing to their empowerment and socio-political agency.
Dr. Kenza Oumlil's work is not only academically significant but also adds depth and understanding to the challenges and triumphs faced by sub-Saharan migrant women in Morocco's digital realm.
