Couscous is the stereotype of North Africa. This women holds the pot used to prepare this dish in various ways. Is she hiding behind this cliché? Doesn’t she want to be anything else but the stereotype of the woman from Maghreb submissive to the rules of a masculine society?

Le stéréotype de l'Afrique du Nord est le couscous. Cette femme tient en ses mains et en différentes postures la marmite qui sert à préparer ce plat . Se cache-t-elle derrière son cliché? ne veut-elle pas être autre chose que le stéréotype de la femme maghrébines soumises aux règles d'une société ou le masculin domine? courtesy BANK galerie
