ANGEL OF WOMEN’S RIGHTS
Tahere, “The Pure One”, (also spelled Táhirih) born Fatimah Baraghani in Iran between 1814 and 1817, was known as an influential poet and theologian of the Bábí Faith.
The Bábí faith promoted a break with Islam and pursued the abrogation of Sharai Law.
Tahere’s life, influence and execution in 1852 made her a key figure of this religion and she caused great controversy by unveiling herself in an assemblage of men during the Conference of Badasht.
It was here that she advanced the difference between Islamic theology and practice and promoted the advancement and entitlements of women.
She is mentioned in Bahá literature as “the first woman suffrage martyr” and an example of courage in the struggle for women’s rights.
