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.”
