MARGINALIZATION OF WOMEN: A FEMINISTIC VIEW OF FAIQA MANSAB’S THIS HOUSE OF CLAY AND WATER
This study explored the various aspects of exploitation and marginalization in Faiqa Mansab’s This House of Clay and Water. The female protagonist of the novel, Nida proves herself to rebel the conventional social norms and traditional values although faced a lot of hurdles in a male dominated society. The study also investigated the factors responsible for the violation of women empowerment in Faiqa Mansab’s This House of Clay and Water (2017) such as conventional social norms which restrict women to their homes, male dominated society, women's subordination in a coherent and systematic way that integrates class and sex, as well as other aspects of identity such as race, ethnicity or sexual orientation, with the aim of using this analysis to help liberate women. The result-oriented discussion examined the role of Faiqa Mansab in taking a look at the traumatic women’s minds by presenting the character of Nida and the bodies subjected to the social system defined by patriarchal codes. There is also room for the future researchers to conduct research in the same field by selected another literary piece.
