Azizah al-Hibri did extensive research and writing for seven chapters of her book, under the working title "Islam, Gender and Marriage: A Jurisprudential Perspective," and revised an article, entitled "Muslim Women's Rights in the Global Village: Challenges and Opportunities," for a special issue on Islam of the Journal of Law and Religion (spring 2000), for which she served as guest editor. She prepared an opinion on the Taliban's destruction of ancient Buddhist temples that was published on several Web sites, including Martin Marty's "Sighting" (Chicago Divinity School), and wrote a short op-ed piece on "Women and the Taliban" that appeared in the Philadelphia Inquirer (March 11, 2001).
