  • History

    Iran-i naw was established on August 24, 1909 after Istibdad-i Saghir (The Lesser Autocracy). The manager of the paper was Muhammad Amin Rasul-zadah, a journalist and a member of the Social Democratic Party of Baku, who came to Iran during Istibdad-i Saghir. Iran-i naw was one of the most influential newspapers after the Constitutional Revolution. Besides its critical commentary on the social order, it was one of the most important newspapers in Iran that published articles on women’s issues as well as articles written by women contributors. Iran-i naw stopped its publication on December 18, 1911 after the second Majlis (Parliament) was closed.
