Gunpowder Women: A Generation Galloping Past the Mudawana
Episode 45: Gunpowder Women: A Generation Galloping Past the Mudawana
In this podcast, Gwyneth Talley, Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropology at the University of California at Los Angeles, presents Morocco's little known tradition of women troupes who perform the famous tbourida (Fantasia) equestrian ceremony. A Fulbright scholar in Morocco (2017-2018), Gwyneth Talley shared insights into how the revival in women's equestrian sports, in particular the tbourida, coincided with the 2004 Moroccan personal status code, the Mudawana. This podcast was recorded on 23 April 2018 at the Tangier American Legation Institute for Moroccan Studies (TALIM).
