Zaib-un-Nissa Hamidullah (1921- 2000) was a writer and journalist, and a pioneer of feminism in her native country of Pakistan. She was the first female columnist, editor, and political commentator in the nation.

She began writing poetry from an early age, and later established herself in the field of journalism; her regular newspaper column, ‘Thru a Woman’s Eyes’, did much to advance women’s rights in Pakistan. In 1951 she became the first female editor and publisher in the country by founding The Mirror, which quickly became very popular for its honest commentaries.
