Colonial/imperial ideology works in ways that are not recognizable to all the colonial subjects. Beneath the very deceitful ethical premise upon which colonial/imperial ideology rests lies an invalid logic sustained by an array of verbal and visual Orientalist mythologies. This book examines the representation of Moroccan women in certain European travel narratives and postcards and then shows the way in which the Moroccan women of the era of colonialism subverted colonial ideology. This book dismantles the illusionary edifice of colonial/imperial ideology and then advances the premise that the Moroccan women of the era of colonialism had their own way of defying the colonial myths. In the main, it examines the gaze as a new mode of resistance and so it shows how it attested to the Moroccan women’s unique existence in the colonial context. Gazing back at the colonizer and divesting them of their own existence gave birth to a very unique feminine way of writing back to the empire.
