In addition, the leadership of the feminist press in Iraq is registered in the name of a leading Syriac Mosulian, as the researchers confirm that the feminist press began with the issuance of the first issue of (Laila) magazine, which was issued and headed by Paulina Hassoun, in 1923 and continued to be published until 1925.
