I have restored the article to the name Fatema Mernissi and adapted the text accordingly.. Although Google shows some 27k hits for Fatima Mernissi versus around 7.6k for Fatema Mernissi, Mernissi uses the later on her own website [1], which I think should be the definitive determinant. -- Viajero 12:00, 13 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Missing Book - "Women's Rebellion and Islamic Memory"[edit]

Mernissi has also written a book called "Women's Rebellion and Islamic Memory." Please include it in the list.

Bibliographical Details:

Women's rebellion & Islamic memory / Fatima Mernissi. Publisher Atlantic Highlands, N.J. : Zed Books, 1996.

Date of Birth vs. Date of Study[edit]

Article states that Fatema Mernissi was born in 1940 and that she studied political science in the same year. Not possible. Most likely the study date is incorrect: "She was born into a middle-class family in Fez in 1940. She received her primary education in a school established by the nationalist movement, and secondary level education in an all-girls school funded by the French protectorate. In 1940, she studied political science at the Sorbonne and at Brandeis University, where she earned her doctorate." —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:27, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Peer Review from Breanna P[edit]

Hi Lbouchie :) I was just wondering if there might be some room for a section talking about orientalism in connection, I saw there were some connections from the link : with lots of good sources for reference. Also wondered about her being the "pride of islamic feminism" there were 11 additional peer review articles available on Ualberta library website: under Fatema Mernissi I am not sure if there is a specialist on Islamic studies (other than Dr. Lifshitz)- perhaps some of the articles we read in class relating to Abu Lughod as she has a lot of pieces as well to draw in connection to Islamic feminism. Also many photographs are always excellent ways to develop the article! Breannapalmer (talk) 23:07, 9 November 2019 (UTC)
