The holy Quran calls unto men and women equally as women ought to carry the responsibility of conveying the message of Allah as men do. This comes through learning, memorization, studying and comprehending. Men and women are alike in religious duties, work, preaching Islam and consequently in rewards. Therefore, since the upcoming of Islam, women have contributed in carrying this responsibility or 'amana' as it was initiated by the mothers of believers 'Omahat Al-Mu'mineen', At present, what we have of women works such as writing and authoring at the field of Interpretation is countable. The previous scholars did not dedicate a single book about women efforts in Quran interpretation. That was recorded in various scattered narrations at the books of translations and others. This implies that women have at least little contributions but certainly not absent. Therefore, this paper explores and identifies women efforts in interpreting Quran in Three parts subsequent to the Introduction and Preface as fellows: Preface: Women interpretations in the early eras, particularly Aisha (RA). Part One: The efforts of Dr. Aisha Abdul Rahman and her methodology in Al-tafseer Al-Bayani. Part Two: The efforts of Zainab Al-Ghazali Al-jubeeli, as a preacher and her perspectives of the holy Quran. Part Three: The efforts of the researcher Hanan Laham and her findings from her work 'Hidayat fi altafseer'. This is in addition to an evaluation of some of the subjective and selective Surahs from the Quran.
