Halima Xudoyberdiyeva (Cyrillic Ҳалима Худойбердиева; pronounced [halima χudɒjberd̪iˈjeβa]; 17 May 1947 – 17 August 2018) was an Uzbek poet whose themes at different times of her career have dealt with Uzbek nationhood and history, liberation movements, and feminism. She was awarded the title People's Poet of Uzbekistan.
Halima Xudoyberdiyeva was born on May 17, 1947 on Taraqqiyot Collective Farm in Boyovut, Sirdaryo Region, Uzbekistan. In 1972 she graduated from Tashkent State University's Faculty of Journalism. Her first employment was as an editor at Saodat magazine. In 1975–1977 she did advanced graduate study at the Maxim Gorky Literature Institute in Moscow. She went on to become the head of the Yosh Gvardiya department of publications in 1978. From 1984 to 1994 she was the editor-in-chief of Saodat. She served as the first president of the Women's Committee of Uzbekistan between 1991 and 1994.
In 1992 Xudoyberdiyeva was honored with the title People's Poet of Uzbekistan and the Order of the Badge of Honor medal. In 2017, on her 70th birthday, she was awarded the Order of El-Yurt Hurmati (Respect of the Homeland) medal. According to Razia Sultanova, Xudoyberdiyeva's poetry presents "perfect examples" of Central Asian female Sufi poetry.
