Tahirih is a Persian name, meaning 'The Pure One'. Tahirih was the title given to Fatimah Baraghani-i-Salmih, by The Bab (a prophet of The Baha'i Faith), when she became one of The Letters of The Living. Tahirih was an influential poetess, a theologian and a women's rights activist living from 1814 to 1852. She famously took her veil off during the conference of Badasht, spearheading women's role as equals to men in the Baha'i Faith. She was martyred by strangulation with her own scarf, her last words being "You may kill me, but you will never stop the emancipation of womenkind."
