Conceptualizing Consumer Freedom: Liberating Shopping Practices Among Moroccan Women

This paper seeks to extend literature on the emancipatory potential of markets. Drawing on a three-year ethnography in Casablanca, we investigate practices by which Moroccan women, who are submitted to rigid social conventions, pursue social freedoms through emerging market conditions. We propose a new theoretical avenue of socio-cultural freedom.
