This book reports on a study examining one of the most challenging issues in Morocco, which is women sex workers, known as 'Prostitutes'. The main purpose of this book is to unveil and analyze the attitudes of Moroccan young people from different educational and social status towards this marginalized category of women in society as well as to draw attention to the physical and psychological consequences associated with the arena of sex. The analytical part of this book is conducted in Fez, and based on both qualitative and quantitative research methods. The findings showed that the perceptions of Moroccans have changed and awareness of this issue has been spread among youth since they considered women working as sex workers as victims of society and their involvement in this forbidden area is only a result of patriarchal systems, poverty, and lack of equal job opportunities.
