Emancipated women of Morocco

My youngest son was working with another man cleaning out an old house and found a huge stash of National Geographic. The oldest date we have found so far is 1960. I found this explanation under a photo of various women waving flags as President Eisenhower drove by [he was on a tour I guess]:

"Emancipated women of Morocco drop veil at will. I sensed their gradual independence in the variety of styles: Some have discarded the covering altogether, some drape it around their chins, while others remain completely hidden.
Their personalities are changing, too. Veil-less women are outgoing and positive, while those clinging to tradition are shy."

May 1960 Vol. 117, No. 5
