Kishwar Naheed, Sitara-e-Imtiaz (born 1940) is an Urdu poet from Pakistan known for her pioneering feminist poetry.

Born in Bulandshahr, India, Kishwar was witness to the violence (including rape and abduction of women) associated with partition, and herself moved with her family to Pakistan in 1949. She has published six collections of poems between 1969 and 1990; We Sinful Women (1990) is a selection in English translation.
