- Country : Pakistan
- Subject : English Language and Literature
The present research demonstrated the depiction and representation of empowered women. Sana Munir's short stories offered rare insight into the lives of seemingly commonplace yet contextually phenomenal protagonists as they tackled extraordinary circumstances in a society that didn't always account for their needs and preferences. The stuff of the book was serious and dealt with the male domination and patriarchy in conservative household setup. The crucial thing was that men were perpetrators who were trusted and well known by these women. In each story, the protector became the hunter of the woman. Although there were ordinary women yet they endured the extra ordinary battles powerfully. For that aim, the researcher had chosen the close textual analysis as method which focused analysis of the text providing justification through secondary resources. Moreover, the researcher had selected the theory feminism and showed that how female, living in Pakistani society was being exploited physically, emotionally and psychologically by patriarchy and male dominance society. The study built on this motif by taking readers on a journey into the lives of ten unforgettable protagonists. Each character endured turbulence and inspired courage.
