A Gynocritical Foucauldian Discourse Analysis of Women's Autonomy - Taslima Nasrin's Writing



In 2003, Taslima Nasrin published one of her most renowned novels Shodh. Most of Taslima's work revolves around Radical Feminism. Taslima's writing portrays the plight of surviving in today's society by being a woman. Her writing shows how women oppress their fellow women in the name of tradition and culture. This research investigates the difficulties and conflicts specific to the experience of being a woman in today's culture. Unless we use the language of women writers, it is hard to speak about women's struggles with any degree of precision. The gynocritical study examines feminist literature written by female writers. It is the study of the female's inner consciousness. The field of Foucauldian Discourse Analysis investigates power dynamics in society by analyzing how language is used. Taslima's writing has the autonomy of voicing out boldly on women's issues, religion, how culture and tradition oppress women, and how the women's body acts as an agency. Taslima's writing can be noted under resistance writing.
