A la tribune avec une pionnière damascène: Marie Ajami (1888―1965)
At the podium with a damascene pioneer Marie Ajami (1888-1965)
This contribution studies the activities and ways by which the Syro-Lebanese journalist and intellectual, Marie Ajamai (1885―1965), impacted public opinion in her homeland and in the larger region. One of the first women journalists in Syria, Marie Ajamai established, in 1910, the first newspaper in Syria specifically intended for women. This prominent and pioneering figure in the Syro-Lebanese intellectual milieu divided her time between various activities. She spent many years teaching, in both educational establishments and the private sector, as well as in writing numerous articles, prose and poetry which were both published and spoken before different groups in the public or private sphere such as in universities and clubs in Syria, Lebanon and Palestine. In addition to this, Marie Ajami founded or co-founded clubs and literary associations, such as the Club féminin littéraire de Damas. During her entire life, she worked for the emancipation and education of women in her country and also for the political and intellectual liberation of the Arab nation, first from the Ottoman occupant and then from the French one.
