Tarab Abd al-Hadi (birth and death dates unknown) was a member of the Arab Women's Executive Committee (AWE), which convened the first Palestine Arab Women's Congress in Jerusalem in 1929. She was married to Awni Abd al-Hadi, who was a prominent Palestinian nationalist during the mandate period, and active in the Istiqlal Party, among other organizations.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
