The Highest Station for a Woman

The Greatest Holy Leaf was elevated by Baha’u’llah to “a ‘station such as none other woman hath surpassed,’ and comparable in rank to those immortal heroines such as Sarah, Asiyih, the Virgin Mary, Fatimih and Tahirih, each of whom has outshone every member of her sex in previous Dispensations.” (Shoghi Effendi, God Passes By, p. 347)
