By the time she married and moved to Jordan, a feminist perspective had begun to emerge within the woman whom Hussein had named Noor, which means "light" in Arabic- a name she retains today, dear to her heart. Her work, her speeches on a variety of issues over the last 25 years, and her book all share a theme and a recurring question regardless of the topic or the arena: What does this policy mean for women? What will the impact be on women? Will women benefit?

Queen Noor speaks openly on understanding the link between poverty, war and poor treatment of women.

Read her thoughts on honor killings, feminism, peace, religious extremism, and what's up next.. get the full story in the Fall 2003 issue of Ms.
