  1. Hassan, M. "Reshaping Religious Authority in Contemporary Turkey: State-Sponsored Female Preacher." Women, Leadership and Mosques: Changes in Contemporary Islamic Authority  (2012): 85-103. [women-leadership-and-mosques]

    Abstract:
    With the active support and intervention of Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs, state-sponsored female preachers are establishing a new model of female religious authority in Turkish society based upon the elevation of well-trained and certified women to official positions of religious influence, whereby they are energetically engaged in (re)shaping the populace’s understanding and interpretations of Islam.
