The project Shred the Patriarchy focuses on the stories of some Moroccan women who practice skateboarding despite the hard social and family repercussions that are forced to suffer for this choice not yet accepted within the moroccan society. The international reputation of Morocco as a reformist and progressive country it is still contradictory when it comes to women which continue to face significant obstacles. Their social, economic and political participation, as well as in the sportâ€™s sphere is still minimized or completely denied. Skateboarding is no exception. If you are a woman you should not practice it. I found it quite important to discover the voices of those few women who decided to break the unsaid rules and to shred around despite the judgments and punishments they receive because of their rebel spirits transforming skateboarding in a form of resistance to patriarchy.
