Saz, we have a good friend, a woman who is a young seventy, who has just returned from a Morocco tour with Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) and she had a blast. It was interesting to hear her tell how she never felt uncomfortable as a woman, and very much did feel like it was a relatively forward thinking country. Now, granted, she was with a tour group, with a truly excellent, native guide-he had the group to his home for a dinner-but she was quite comfortable in Morocco, YMMV. They discussed at length life in Morocco, Islam, marriage, food, etc with their guide, and she came away with an understanding of an Islamic country doing its best to promote a-here comes that word again-relative degree of equality and societal progressiveness. It sounds to me like it may be harder to offend someone there than one may think. The call to prayer happens five times per day, but she was comfortable and loved it, nothing but good things to say about the experience, truly unique.
I realize you are not asking/looking for a tour per se, but you may find this interesting, good luck!
By the way, she "fell" for the Sahara camel ride and tent "camping", it was part of the tour-she absolutely loved the experience.
