Touria Oulehri (1926-2011) was a Moroccan author.
Oulehri was a teacher at the École Normale Supérieure in Meknès. She published articles on the subject of literary criticism as well as on both francophone Moroccan authors and authors of the 16th century.
Her first two novels, La répudiée (Éditions Afrique-Orient, 2001) and La chambre des nuits blanches (Marsam, 2002), were well received.
The protagonist of La répudiée is Niran, a modern young woman, repudiated for being childless. After fifteen years of marriage, under social and family pressure, her husband leaves her to marry a younger and fertile woman. The book treats an issue of particular concern in contemporary Moroccan rural communities.
La chambre des nuits blanches tells the story of a woman who withdraws from her surroundings and reassesses the past, in an effort to comprehend the direction of her life.
