Fatma Aliye Topuz (October 9, 1862 - July 13, 1936), aka Fatma Aliye or Fatma Aliye Han m, was a Turkish novelist, columnist, essayist, women's rights activist and humanitarian. Although there is an earlier published novel by the Turkish female author Zafer Han m in 1877, since that one remained her only novel, Fatma Aliye Han m with her five novels is credited by circles of Turkish literature as the first female novelist of the literature of Turkey and the Islamic geography. She was born as the second child to a leading Ottoman civil servant and renowned historian Ahmet Cevdet Pasha (1822-1895) and his wife Adviye Rabia Han m in Istanbul. She had two siblings: a brother Ali Sedat and a sister Emine Semiye (1864). Due to her father's position as Wali (province governor) to Egypt and later to Greece, she spent three years between 1866-1868 in Aleppo and six months in 1875 in Janina. In 1878, she stayed together with her family nine months in Damascus, where her father was appointed.show more
