Literary Depiction of Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain’s Vision of an Equitable and Developed Society with The Cooperation of Empowered Women in Sultana’s Dream and Padmarag (Published)
Sultana’s Dream and Padmarag present us a model of the envisaged world of Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain-an equitable and developed society with the cooperation of empowered women. She draws this model as realistically as possible. Like any utopian land, everything is not smooth and beautiful here. Women empowerment does not occur in a magical way. All the possible hindrances that may appear on the way of the women trying to be empowered are clearly foretold here. Yet the portraits of the empowered women, who successfully achieve independence, self- dignity, the right to voice their own opinions, and the ability to serve the society are indeed inspirational for all, particularly for the captivated women of patriarchy.
