was a Turkish novelist and feminist political leader. Best known for her novels criticizing the low social status of Turkish women and what she saw as the disinterest of most women in changing their situation, she also served as a soldier in the Turkish military during Turkish War of Independence.

Halide Edip was born in Istanbul, Ottoman Empire; as a girl, she studied Arabic and mathematics, and graduated from the American College for Women in 1901; the college was an influential force for reformist social change at the time. With her first husband, Salih Zeki, she had two children before they divorced.

Her first novel, Seviye Talip, was published in 1909. She remarried, to Dr. Adnan Adıvar, in 1917, and the next year took a job as a lecturer in literature at Istanbul's Faculty of Letters. It was during this time that she became increasingly active in Turkey's nationalist movement, and after the end of World War I she and her husband travelled to Anatolia to fight in the War for Independence; she served first as a colonel and then as a sergeant in the nationalist military.
