So basically, patriarchy is the dominance of male over female in which this relation of power over one gender towards the other results this kind of oppression. Thus, this paper, in a way, will theorize this concept and its relation to oppression within the Arab world.

The discussion on this concept will be within the scope of Moroccan encounter with globalization or third world confrontation with the west.
