عنوان مقاله [English]
Ghajar era opened up a new chapter in the life of Iranian women; as a result of intellectual growth in this period Iranian women got a chance to enter social scenes more than before, and their role appeared in social and cultural events. Constitutional discourse, social development and resultant freedom created a chance for women to openly express their perspectives and try to realize them; publishing feminist journals and establishing socio-political associations were among the most important means they used to achieve this aim. Shahnaz Azad (Roshdeeh) was one of the women's rights defenders in the late Ghajar era. Publishing Lady's journal, she sought to awaken and illuminate women about their rights and status. The journal published articles written by women only, mainly discussed Iranian female education and revised the idea of women absence in society. This research aims to study women's socio-cultural demands from Shahnaz Azad viewpoint and Lady's journal as well.
