Bibi Khatoon (1858-1921) Bibi was one of the influential figures in the Iranian constitutional revolution in the late 19th and the early 20th century. She founded the first school for girls (named The School for Girls) in the modern history of Iran and wrote numerous articles in defence of the right of girls to receive universal education. Bibi is also known for her book Ma'ayeb al-Rejal (Failings of Men), which was a critical response to the pamphlet Ta'deeb al-Nesvan (Edification of Women) by an anonymous author. Ma'ayeb al-Rejal was published in 1895, eleven years before the inauguration of Iran's system of constitutional monarchy in 1906 by the decree of Mozaffar al-Din Shah Qajar.This book is considered by some as the first declaration of women's rights in the recent history of Iran.
