Maryam Sāvujī مریم ساوجی


Maryam Sāvujī (born in 1917 or 1919) was an Iranian poet, writer, and a feminist activist. Her background in both literature and law and her concern for education, particularly the cause of educating women, motivated her to publish articles on various topics such as gender equality and family law, education, and the use of literature as a tool for education. Her focus on women’s education resulted in her founding of a girls’ school in Tehran, where she served as principal. She was the first woman to talk about women’s legal rights on radio during the 1950s.
