Muslim and Arab Women
Dr. Nimat Hafez Barazangi's forty years of combined scholarly active work with Arab, Muslim, and non-Muslim organizations and individuals in North America and the Muslim/Arab world has mainly focused on the development and education of Muslim/Arab women in the primary sources of Islam; the Qur'an and the Hadith (Prophet Muhammad's narrated traditions). She published about 25 research articles and book reviews, and a monograph on this subject.
Her monograph Woman's Identity and the Qur'an: A New Reading (The University Press of Florida, 2004) was labeled by an anonymous reviewer as "the most radical book in the last 14 centuries of Islam." The monograph was translated in 2007 into Arabic under the title: Qira'a Jadida lil Qura'n: Al Huwiya al Dhatiya lil Mar'a.
