Summary/Abstract: The literature of the new generation of Moroccan novelists falls under the rupture with the preceding one, in the sense that it was not only released from conventions, but also transgressed the sexual, religious and cultural taboos. The famous Moroccan writer, Tahar Ben Jelloun, allows woman her voice which was previously confiscated by Man. In fact, Tahar Ben Jelloun's writings has become a freedom of expression space which also deploys occulted words. Within this perspective, Tahar Ben Jelloun's novels display a univers where the female presents her views, as the “speaking subject”. In doing so, she symbolizes the desir of breaking the silence imposed by habits and traditions. Thus, we will stress the various aspects of woman's position in the Moroccan society through the Maghrebian literature of French expression in general. In particular, we will highlight the female representation in the novels of Tahar Ben Jelloun.
