Stemming from the pre-Islamic era of Morocco, Aisha Qandisha is said to have been a female demon that takes the shape of multiple beings, including a half-goat.Aicha Qandisha, unlike other demons in Moroccan folklore, appears mostly in men’s dreams and is said to make a man impotent.Dominant narratives described Moroccan women as docile, oppressed, and in need of being saved.Consequently, Moroccan women’s experience of life under colonialism was a result of multiple intersections of power and patriarchy.It is believed that the tale of Aisha Qandisha has existed since at least the 7th century.

As part of a broader French imperialist project that justified the colonization of Morocco and the Maghreb region in general, European narratives on Moroccan women were fixated on Orientalist images.

The hierarchy and importance of women were further categorized according to age and status in the family and community.

Among their activities during that period were performing household chores, embroidery, and crafts, attending Koranic schools, and going to a Moroccan bathhouse known as the hammam.
