Subversion of Traditional Feminine Stereotyped in Selected Pakistani Fiction
This article investigates the subversion of traditional feminine stereotyped in the Selected Pakistani Fiction, The Weary Generation by Abdullah Hussain. Pakistani writers have always highlighted the struggle and oppression of women in a patriarchal society and represented as women as weak and obedient. However, this novel stands out among the traditional novels written in Pakistan. The selected novel influenced by western ideologies portrays women as independent and confident beings. The selected Pakistani Fiction examines the main female archetype and the socio-political atmosphere that gives them birth regarding women’s autonomy and liberty. In this regard, Azra, the protagonist, subverts the traditional beliefs regarding the rights, freedom, tasks, and assignments of females in the patriarchal society. For discussion, Friedan’s Feminine Mystique has been taken as a theoretical framework. Through this, it displays a ray of hope and opens new corridors for women’s prosperity. The selected fiction is recommended for future researchers to identify the impact of western ideologies regarding female, gender, and sexuality in the Pakistani context
