These Moroccan girls spotted my camera while I was walking on the beach and they flocked around me, begging me to take their picture. The uncle of one of them spoke French and translated. Apart from their openness and charm, what really fascinated me was the behavior of the little girl in the right foreground, who quickly removed her blouse and carefully pulled her undershirt down to reveal one nipple before I took the picture. In a society where no woman appears on the street without a head covering and ankle-length coat, where did she learn this? The Mediterranean sea is in the background of this picture and Spain is visible on the other side, its television signal easily picked up in Morocco. It’s not necessarily a good influence. What do we teach our girls?
