About Zahra Rahnavard
Zahra Rahnavard (Persian: زهرا رهنورد; born Zohreh Kazemi on October 31, 1945 in Khomein, Iran) is an Iranian artist and politician. She served as the chancellor of Alzahra University in Tehran, Iran, from 1998 to 2006, and as a Political Adviser to the former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami. Zahra Rahnavard earned her bachelor and master's degrees in art and architecture from University of Tehran. She has also got master's and PhD degrees from Islamic Azad University in Political science. Rahnavard was among the early revolutionaries against the Shah. In the last years of the Shah, she was close to Ali Shariati, a dissident Islamist leader.She has even been likened several times to Michelle Obama — a comparison that she herself rejected. “I am not Michelle Obama. I am Zahra Rahnavard. I am a follower of the daughter of the Prophet Muhammad, who has the same name," she said. Rahnavard was the first Iranian woman appointed as a chancellor of a university since the Iranian Revolution of 1979. She was nominated to this post by former Minister of Science, Research and Technology, Mostafa Moin. After the election of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2005 and the purging of reformist officials from the government, Rahnavard was removed or resigned from her position as the chancellor of Al-zahra University in 2006, replaced by Mahboubeh Mobasheri. She is the wife of Iranian ex-prime minister Mir-Hossein Mousavi (the last Prime Minister of Iran) and has three daughters. Since Mousavi's entry into the 2009 presidential race she has actively participated in his campaign.
