Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain (রোকেয়া সাখাওয়াত হোসেন) (1880 – December 9, 1932), was a prolific writer and a social worker in undivided Bengal in the early 20th century. She is most famous for her efforts on behalf of gender equality and other social issues. She established the first school aimed primarily at Muslim girls, which still exists today. She was a notable Muslim feminist; modern feminist writers such as Taslima Nasrin cite her as an influence.[1] Begum Rokeya also wrote short stories and novels. Her important books are Sultana's Dream and Paddorag.
