HRH Princess Lalla Aicha

From AllAfrica:
French historian Charles Saint-Prot said that all Morocco's friends were saddened by the news of the death, on Sunday, of HRH Princess Lalla Aicha, "one of the leading figures in the fight for the emancipation of the Moroccan women."

The late princess made history during the historical visit of Sultan Mohammed V to Tangier in April 1947, Saint-Prot told MAP.

"Princess Lalla Aicha, who was also the first women in the Arab world to hold diplomatic positions, was a brilliant symbol of the reformist aspect of a Moroccan monarchy that has been geared towards progress," said the historian and author of the book "Mohammed V or the popular monarchy," to be published by Rocher in late 2011.
