The beginning of the feminist movement in Iran coincided with the Constitutional Revolution and the reign of the first Pahlavi monarch. Liberal minded women took the initiative into their own hands and founded the first schools for girls, they organized societies and published journals dealing specifically with women's issues. Some pioneer women demanded legal rights for women. Parvin E`tesami was foremost among these women. She supported women's rights through her poetry, she consistently demanded that women should be respected and criticised and objected to the condition of women. She disparaged the patriarchal attitude of the government and her poems are full of her insistence that women and girls should be protected by society. The present article attempts to prove that a poem published in 1300/1921 in the journal Alam-e Nesvan, was by written by her. This short Qasideh, elegy has not attracted the attention of those who specialize in her work. The author of the present article attempts to establish the authenticity of this work as written by Parvin E`tesami by examining her style, and feminist stance of this famous poet.
