This chapter describes the interactions around the Casablanca Islamist rally of 2000 and examines the way the rally propelled feminist groups to rethink activism in light of the Islamist women’s entry to the political field. It outlines events that indicated a full-fledged change in the women’s rights legislation in Morocco, such as the sudden death of King Hassan II in 1999 and the ascension of his son, King Mohamed VI, who expressed his commitment to women’s rights. The chapter concludes with an account of the process of the Islamization of the feminist movement, and analysis of the types of adjustments that feminist groups had to make to keep the project of reform alive.
