Two women in search of their female identity: Tahirih Qurrat al-'Ain (1817-1852) and Forough Farrokhzad (1934-1967). The two leading poets of their generations and made a strong commitment to women's rights in Iran and led a very emancipated for that time of life. Even today they are considered role models of Iranian women's movement.
