Tahar Haddad
Tahar Haddad (Arabic: الطاهر الحداد‎‎; 1899 – December 1935) was a Tunisian author, scholar and reformer.
Tahar Haddad
Haddad, was born in Tunis to a family of shopkeepers and studied Islamic law at the Great Mosque of Zitounia from 1911 until his graduation in 1920.[1] He became a notary; he abandoned his career to become a member of the Al-Destour, a political party. He left the party when he became unsatisfied with the leadership.[2]
Haddad was a feminist. In the 1930 book Our Women in the Shari 'a and Society he advocated for expanded rights for women and said that the interpretations of Islam at the time inhibited women.[3]
Haddad was never exiled at the time where the French colonial government sent his friend and co-founder of the CGTT labor union into exile. For a short period of time, he became the leader of the trade union movement. Haddad died of tuberculosis.[2]
