    Olfa Youssef

    Olfa Youssef is a Tunisian writer specializing in linguistics, psychology, and Islamic sciences.  Olfa Youssef chose to have her PhD on a very critical subject, the plurality of meanings of the Qur’an.

    Olfa Youssef was not just a scholar, she was also a public figure with several religious programs on national TV and radio, where she became a very controversial personality. Her appearance as a religious mentor was not well received by Tunisians. As a woman discussing religion on TV, she lost credibility by not wearing a veil, and her speech was not the regular religious speech that Tunisians are used to hear.

    Olfa published a a few books mostly focusing on women in Islam. Her first book was titled, Lacking in Reason and Religion, and the second one was Confusion of Muslim Women.
