The purpose of this study was to evaluate the current status of working women in
healthcare services in Kenitra through a comparative analysis between private and public
sectors. Since ‘the current status’ is wide and blurred phrase, the present study based its general
deductions on various variables, namely, feminist consciousness, working conditions, gender
equality and domestic support. Making use of various data collection instruments, this study is
both qualitative and quantitative in nature. The aim behind this triangulation is to elicit reliable
deductions about the socioeconomic status of working women in health services, in addition to
determining the cultural obstacles that still block the advancement of Moroccan women. The
questionnaire includes quantitative items used to elicit respondents’ attitudes and perceptions
towards different issues related to their public and private spheres. The semi-structured
interview makes use of qualitative items in the form of open-ended questions designed to figure
out the professional and familial circumstances that shape their lives. In the quantitative part,
the job of the researcher holds mostly on statistical data. The target population is defined as the
working women in health services in kenitra from both sectors. Since respondents exercise
different professions, which definitely effect respondents’ answers and attitudes due to the
variances of circumstances, it is worth using Stratified random sampling which refers to the
procedure of targeting population which is divided into strata (or subgroups). The study
concluded that the current status of Moroccan working women in healthcare services is below
the average.
