Revision as of 19:34, 22 July 2006
The Atlas Mountains are a mountain range in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. The range can be divided into the High Atlas (or Grand Atlas) of Morocco, the Tell Atlas near the coast and the southern Saharan Atlas.
The Berbers(or Amazigh possibly more properly) seem much more relaxed regarding women and Islam. Women are often seen on the street. It is said that the form of Islam practiced in the rest of the country never penetrated fully into the High Atlas, and all the attempts throughout history to invade the mountains have failed at least in part.
