The peer-reviewed, award-winning JENdA: A Journal of Culture and African Women Studies has published "Muslim Women in Africa and the Diaspora: Past, Present and the Future" as Issue 28 guest-edited by Professor Hadeer Abou El Nagah. It is really an insider's analysis that also places Africa at the center of its analysis. This type of analysis is something that is often missing in a lot of texts about Muslims and on Islam. This dynamic issue features critical research on Muslim women, and explores roles that Muslim women in Africa and the Diaspora has played and is playing to redefine themselves within Islam in contemporary times. This issue will make an excellent addition to those teaching classes about Islam, Africa, women, gender, and Muslims.
