Empowering Women as the Means of Emancipation: A Critical Study of Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain’s Sultana’s Dream


Sultana’s Dream is a notable literary creation of Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, where she delineates the nuanced picture of patriarchy, the distress of women caused by patriarchal oppression, and the way of women’s emancipation. Women were denied every right and chance in life due to patriarchal oppression. The male authorities even ill-treated them in the confinement of four walls. In Sultana’s Dream, Rokeya emphasized women’s empowerment for the emancipation of women from the manacle of a ruthless male-dominated society. Instead of a male-dominated society, she envisioned and strived for a developed society that included men’s and women’s cooperation and contributions. In the light of Rokeya’s Sultana’s Dream, this research study will seek to trace women’s empowerment as a means of their emancipation from the shackles of patriarchy. This study will also focus on the context of women before their empowerment, problems with unempowered women, obstacles to women empowerment, and other relevant issues with women empowerment.

Keywords: economic freedom, patriarchal oppression, women education, women emancipation, women empowerment
