The Zoubeida Bchir prize for women’s writings rewards women writers in literary creation, scientific research, research on Tunisian women and gender approach, and the best script. The Zoubeida Bchir prize for Tunisian women’s writing was created in 1995 in the name of poetess Zoubeida Bchir (February 8, 1938 – August 21, 2011). This native of Sakiet Sidi Youssef, in the north-west, was the first poetess in Arabic since independence. She was also a presenter at the Tunisian Radio from 1959 to 1962.
