From the publisher: “During such a time, Tahirih boldly proclaimed to her native land the advent of a new Day of God. A renowned poet, quick in argument and eloquent of speech, uncompromising in her demands for the emancipation of women, Tahirih became a legend in her own time. Despite fierce opposition from her own family, denunciations by the Muslim clergy, arrests and imprisonment, she traveled between Iran and Iraq teaching her revolutionary Message.”
