Lise Deharme (née Hirtz) (1898-1979), was a French writer associated with the Surrealist movement.

She was born in Paris in 1898, daughter of a famous doctor. She visited the Paris Bureau of Surrealist Research in 1925 and, as a result of an incident recorded in André Breton's Nadja, became known as "The Lady of the Glove".

She married Paul Deharme, the radio pioneer who worked with surrealist Robert Desnos, in 1927.

Her first publication was as Lisa Hirtz: Il était une petite pie [There was a little magpie] (with 8 pochoirs by Joan Miró) in 1928.

She was the editor of Le Phare de Neuilly, which frequently published articles relating to surrealism.
