Literature played a significant role in the lives of Mughal women, who were known for their love of books and poetry. Many women of the Mughal court were highly educated and literate, and they often hosted literary gatherings where they discussed and debated the latest works of literature. One notable example of a Mughal woman with a passion for books is Empress Nur Jahan, who was a gifted poet and patron of the arts. She was known for her love of Persian literature and her support of female writers and poets. Another example is Jahanara Begum, the daughter of Emperor Shah Jahan, who was a renowned author and patron of Sufi literature. These women were able to use their knowledge of literature to gain social influence and promote their own values and beliefs, despite the limitations placed on them by their gender and societal expectations.
