The book, which is the story of Bibi Maryam, from her childhood to the Iranian Constitutional Revolution, was translated by Shima Elahi.

The book was published in cooperation with Iran’s Embassy in South Africa.

In the introduction of the book it is written: “The book was published by the Crown publication in Johannesburg in South Africa.”

The present book is the result of 11 years of research about Bibi Maryam Bakhtiari, one of the most famous and militant women in Iran during the constitutional era and the First World War (1914-1918), a unique woman in contemporary history and the mother of Alimardan Khan Bakhtiari, who was martyred in 1934.
