Sousan Azadi (born 1954) is the author, with Angela Ferrante, of the 1987 memoir Out of Iran, which was published by Time Warner's imprint Little, Brown and Company.[1] The book describes her experiences in Iran during the Islamic Revolution of 1979, her brief imprisonment during this time, and her eventual escape from the country.

"Azadi" is a pen name which she assumed in order to protect her family members in Iran from harassment. She claims to be a great-granddaughter of a Qajar Shah.[2]

Azadi currently lives in Canada, where she designs and sells jewelry.
