And local media reports stated that “Mama Al-Shanna” or “Mama Aisha” died in Sheikh Khalifa Hospital in Casablanca, at the age of 81, after suffering from illness.
She spent her life fiercely defending single mothers in Morocco, informing society of their suffering and asking officials to protect them and empower them with all their rights.
She joined the Association for the Protection of Children and the Moroccan League to Fight Tuberculosis, after obtaining a diploma from the School of Nursing in 1960, and then worked in a number of associative institutions, which enabled her to closely examine humanitarian cases. And on the ground.
In 1985, that is, 37 years ago, Aisha Al-Shanna founded the Feminist Solidarity Association, to help single women and rape victims, as she continued to provide them with psychological, legal and economic support, and give them the confidence to build themselves and integrate into society in their new status.
Throughout her struggle, Aisha was crowned with several important awards, most notably the Human Rights Prize in Paris (1995 AD), the “Elizabine Norcal Prize” in Frankfurt (2005), and the American Opis Prize (2009 AD), which amounted to about one million dollars.
