Amina Yabis was a typical Moroccan housewife and mother of four boys whose husband was a school teacher. With the support of her husband and family, she decided to break out of the narrow role defined for her by Moroccan society and help women play a part in the economic and political life of her community. She formed a women’s craft association called Golden Buttons to market
the hand-woven buttons women had been making in their homes for generations. Economic success led to a literacy campaign for women and more economic opportunities.
