Obituary: Fatima Mernissi (1940-2015)

The wonderful Fatima Mernissi, the Woman Who Read the Quran, the woman who said that women should read Quran by themselves, the Moroccan sociologist and writer, died in Rabat, Morocco on November 30th. I teach Mernissi. I will post a full obituary later. I just read on BBC that she had passed. Rest in peace, Fatima. Thank you for your clear, brave, beautiful books.
