Abstract

The article focuses on fiction of Taslima Nasrin that highlights the hardships faced by women in a third-world orthodox society of Bangladesh. The article explores to establish that Nasrin, quite contrary to the charge of just being a propagandistic writer, is actually an astute social observer. In her writing, she provides solutions, which are in sync with her radical feminist stance. The paper shows that Nasrin challenges the patriarchal society and tries to give the message that submissive women can’t create a just society.

key words : Feminist writing patriarchal society third-world societies women writers orthodo Bangladesh Taslima Nasrin
