Different versions of the name include: Vashti, Vasty and Vashty

Queen Vasti (Hebrew: ושתי, Persian: وَ شتی ) is the wife of King Ahasuerus in the Book of Esther, a book included in the Bible. She is banished for her refusal to appear at the king's banquet to come wearing her royal crown to display her "beauty" for the king and his guests. It is implied that she was being asked to appear naked. She is viewed as an independent-minded heroine and a virtuous woman.

Persian tradition regards Vasti as a distinct historical figure.
She is regarded as one of the first feminists.
Early feminists, such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Harriet Beecher Stowe, admired Vasti's principle and courage.
Harriet Beecher Stowe called Vasti's disobedience the "first stand for woman's rights."
