Abstract: 

A fertile land with developed urban centres was resided by civilized people, Andalusia cradled culture and knowledge so much as to expand its academic centres by attracting the cultural and literary wealth of the Arab world to the East. Literature began to flourish and poetry got to be favoured especially by princes who liked to attend poets and their recitals. Part of the literary-scientific movement in Andalusia was undertaken by women. Impacted by Islamic teachings that require both sexes of acquiring knowledge, they involved in educational activities, mastered various sciences and skills, and finally managed to make their way into circles attended by courtiers and great men of letters. Starring wherever they attended, women proved to be good competitors for men in all domains of literature. They triggered their own literary movement in Andalusia which led to a new school of poetry. One of those outstanding Andalusian ladies who set an example for her fellows was Valladeh, the daughter of Al-mostakfī-bellāh, a short-term ruler in Andalusia.
The present article is intended to illustrate the role of women, as a segment of population, in the Andulusian literature. The main focus of attention is Valladeh, the distinguished Andalusian poetess, and her lofty position in literature and history books.
