  • WOMEN HAVE NO COLOR: MULTICULTURAL PHILOSOPHIES AND CONFLICTING
           MULTIETHNIC IDENTITIES IN ZADIE SMITH’S WHITE TEETH

    • Authors: Hassan Bin Zubair, Aqsa Kiran Safeer, Saima Larik
      Abstract: This research attempts to explore the real picture of Britain after World War Second. In White Teeth, the novelist shows the cultural conflicts between three different families (the Iqbals, the Jones, and the Chalfens) from different cultural backgrounds. In the novel, Zadie Smith tells the story of the characters' problems and the resolution to those problems while living in contemporary British society. Immigrants cannot find favourable circumstances to prove themselves who they are. The novel attempts to point out the misinterpretation and consequently offers advice to correct the problem of intercultural miscommunication in the west. White Teeth also draws upon the changes in social space in terms of the evolution of a multi-ethnic society. There is a gap in understanding between the different families and also within a family. This research is qualitative in nature. This gap is filled by acknowledging the differences through harmony and mutuality. For this purpose, the theoretical concepts of Chris Barker and Conrad William Watson, Keith Banting, and John Horton are used as theoretical insights for the analysis and explication. The researcher comes to a finding that multicultural philosophies are formed through understanding others to form one's cultural identity. The major finding of this research is that toleration and accommodation are multicultural ethos in contemporary multicultural society.

  • FEMINIST ARCHETYPE IN FICTION BY PAKISTANI WOMEN WRITERS

    • Authors: Dr Ambreen Salahuddin
      Abstract: This paper attempts to ascertain the presence of feminist archetypes in the works of Pakistani women fiction writers. Women fiction writers of Pakistan were selected for this study on the criterion of at least two published books; either novel or collected short stories. Another criterion was publication of their works in reputed A category literary journals. For the current study, the archetypes are identified as per the forms of women consciousness. The forms of women consciousness are feminine, female and feminist. One archetype, i.e. the feminist archetype is explored out of the three forms of women consciousness. This study relies on qualitative data collected through theoretical sampling. Thematic analysis technique is applied for the analysis of collected data. For the philosophical and epistemological position of the study, ‘Images of women school of criticism’ is used. Images of women school of criticism explores the images of women as portrayed in literary works. Initially works by men were explored through the theoretical lens of Images of women school of criticism, as to how the male writers portray women in their writings. Later on, the works of fiction by women authors also came in the scope of this school of criticism. Data showed that feminist archetype is rarely present in the works of these women fiction writers, and most of the time if there is a feminist archetype, the context is of sexual freedom alone. Most of the archetypes found in fiction of Pakistan women writers are either female or feminine. However sometimes a transition from feminine to feminist is also visible.

  • ANALYSIS OF FACTORS CONTRIBUTING TO GIRLS’ DROPOUT FROM SECONDARY
           SCHOOLS IN RURAL SINDH, PAKISTAN

    • Authors: Dr.Nadia Agha, Rahimdad Rind, Maria Issani
      Abstract: Even though girls’ education ensures socio-economic development, it is not accessible to many girls living in less privileged areas. A significant number of girls in South Asia reportedly discontinue their secondary level education due to several cultural and economic factors. This study was carried out to investigate the factors that cause hurdles in the way of girls’ secondary education. A total of 200 households were randomly surveyed from district Khairpur, Sindh to record men’s opinions about social, cultural, economic and geographical dimensions influencing girls’ secondary education. The findings of this study indicate that girls’ secondary education is not favoured in rural communities in a bid that the primary responsibility of girls is to look after the household. Parents want to see their daughters as good wives and mothers, and this has a consequential impact on their education. Results highlight that early marriage, patriarchy, cultural values and school distance deter girls’ secondary level schooling in rural Sindh. We suggest to address socio-economic, cultural and geographical barriers to ensure girls’ participation in secondary schools otherwise girls’ limited access to education and gender-based discrimination will persist, which is likely to result in socio-economic retardation

  • A CULTURAL ECOFEMINISM PERSPECTIVE OF KEATS’ LA BELLE DAME SANS
           MARCI

    • Authors: Bakht Sultana, Samreen Zaheer, Islam Badshah
      Abstract: This study aims to explore the interrelation between womanhood and nature. For this purpose, the present study has adopted Ortner’s (1972) cultural eco-feminism as a theoretical framework to interpret John Keats’ poetical stance used in his poem La Belle Dame Sans Marci. The theory states that the subjugation of women and the operation of nature are closely or identically interrelated. However, the similar status of women and nature sufferings due to the mindset of the people towards patriarchal setup has been highlighted by certain eco-cultural feminists. This textual analysis study is qualitative in nature. This has been revealed through analysis of the text with the help of literary devices: metaphors, personification and symbolism are used in Keats’ poem La Belle Dame Sans Merci to show the equivalent position shared by nature and women. It also highlights that Keats observed critically the patriarchal, hierarchical and dualistic culture on one hand by taking into account the conventional mindset towards the oppression of the women and subjugation of nature for a long time while on the other Keats’ representation of women being suppressed as living in the same cultural manner as nature has been portrayed in his poetry. Thus, the connection of nature to the past serves the purpose to explain how the surroundings, art, animals, birds along with women have been demoralized and subjugated

  • RE CONFIGURING “GENDER COMPLEMENTARITIES” AND THE LANGUAGE OF FEMININE
           DEFIANCE IN SHAMSUR REHMAN FARUQI’S THE MIRROR OF BEAUTY

    • Authors: Zarmeena Khan, Dr. Salma Khatoon
      Abstract: “Gender integration” and “feminine desire” have often been opposed by different theorists. This research employs Judith Butler’s philosophy of gender performance to analyze the novel Shamsur Rehman Farooqi’s The Mirror of Beauty. This paper highlights the character of Wazir Khanum who is the protagonist of the novel and contends that Wazir Khanum appears as a character who has transcended the gender bipartite through her language of defiance. In the novel, the reader’s outdated concept of gender is defied. The novel portrays that the women of India, Muslims or Hindus, were not considered as a product; rather, it is the narrative of the West which is trying to fix a wrong depiction of the Indians, envisaging them to be everything the West is not. In the novel, the heroine, Wazir Khanam who challenges all these conservative tales and does so in a grand style is presented to the reader as a figure that challenges all conventional narratives and gender discourses through her language of defiance. The article is built around the theoretical framework of Judith Butler’s representation of women in a patriarchal world as subalterns. Butler’s Gender Trouble (2004) significantly states that women have traditionally been treated as subalterns as far as their political representation is concerned. Therefore, the most important goal of feminist theory has been to make such language changes that symbolize women, especially as far as their prominence in a dogmatic sphere is concerned. Taking this as a challenge Butler has given a detailed account of gender bipartite and ‘gender complementarities’.

  • WOMEN’S PARTICIPATION IN THE POLITICAL PROCESS: A COMPARATIVE
           ANALYSIS OF INDIA AND PAKISTAN

    • Authors: Dr. Munawar Hussain, Saima Noor, Dr. Ronaque Ali Behan
      Abstract: Women's participation and representation in politics at the state level is considered important for gender equality and women's empowerment, but their participation in politics on equal footing with men, remains a distant dream. In this research, an effort has been made to combine gender and politics in terms of a cross-national study to explore the status of women in politics and explore the factors that led them to raise voice against patriarchal society. It is difficult for women to survive with equal rights in that society where religious, economic, and patriarchal mindsets are the main factors that hinder women from actively participating in politics. Women are facing violence and discrimination in politics because male-dominated societies have institutionalized and created a mechanism that is against women's rights such as structural, ideological, and functional in politics which have strengthened gender inequality. The descriptive method has been used in this paper to find out women’s low participation in the politics of India and Pakistan. The facilitator model is used to identify the patterns of societal as well as structural factors in politics, which prevent and restrict the full participation of women in politics. Findings suggest that the patriarchal and gender-stratified structures govern the society and the women of both countries face violence, but the nature of violence is different in each case. In India, there has been political discrimination against women based on the caste system, and in Pakistan, feudal structures are the main causes of women's low participation in politics.

  • ANALYSIS OF ECONOMIC VALUATION OF WOMEN’S INVISIBLE HOUSEHOLD WORK:
           EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF GUJRAT DISTRICT

    • Authors: Dr. Abdul Razzaq Khan, Dr. Zahid H. Channa, Dr. Sadia Hanif
      Abstract: This research takes women's invisible work or hidden work into consideration and tries to analyze its economic value. Present research conducted in the Gujrat district of Punjab Pakistan. A triangulation method used to collect data from 286 female respondents was selected through the purposive sampling technique for this study. The economic value is analyzed by using the third person method. The results showed that women perform unpaid household tasks for seven hours a day. The economic value of that work is Rs 539 in a day. A woman performs a lot of household chores that are supposed to be her responsibility. She is making an effort to provide a peaceful and comfortable environment to make her home worth living. The present study suggested a convention on women workers and should develop a national policy to recognize the unpaid work of women and should adopt appropriate legislation and provide safety nets for them.

  • HARASSMENT OF WOMEN AT DIFFERENT LEVELS OF SOCIETY: ARE WOMEN SAFE AFTER
           HARASSMENT BILL AROUND DISTRICT BAHAWALNAGAR'

    • Authors: Imran Malik, Saima Yousaf, Amreen Choudhary
      Abstract: This paper aims to bring forth the harassment and gender discrimination being faced by women of different segments of society. How have they been victimized' and their awareness and response regarding discrimination. Qualitative approach has been applied for study and interviews of groups of females of different professions, students, lawyers, working-class women and house- wives are the source to analyze the facts. Total numbers of 25 females have been interviewed for this study. In addition, analysis shows the level of understanding about their rights and sensitivity regarding harassment and discrimination. The results are evident of unawareness, gender biased norms of society and ignorance about the rights and types of harassments. Mainly the victims are ignorant and if aware, society and cultural norms do not allow them standing against discrimination. However, the act for protection against women harassment has been initiated since 2010 yet there is long way to achieve its benefits for securing females. Secondly, it addresses the deficiency in the act for those women staying at home and facing harassment by different male relatives and they share no place in it. The Act no doubt is a milestone to address the serious issue of security of females but it will take time for females to feel secure in the wake of its true implementation. The need lies in evaluating the true circumstances, societal norms and hurdles to resolve the problem because main issues are usually ignored.

  • RECLAIMING AGENCY IN A PATRIARCHAL FICTION: JUANA AS THE VOICE OF WISDOM
           AND RESOLUTION IN JOHN STEINBECK’S THE PEARL

    • Authors: Imdad Ullah Khan, Saira Asghar Khan, Akbar Ali
      Abstract: Since the publication of his first novel “Cup of Gold”, the fictional production of John Steinbeck has remained in focus for literary critics for its diminishing and essentialist portrayal of female characters. His female characters often lack fully developed three-dimensional personalities and remain subservient to the desire and plans of the male characters. Glaring schematic differences between male and female characters in his fiction have led some scholars to charge him of misogyny. However, in his novella “The Pearl”, Steinbeck portrays Juana more sympathetically, although not completely judiciously, as a female character who shows resolution, resourcefulness, wisdom, and foresight par excellence in comparison to her short-sighted and impulsive husband Kino. The present paper analyzes key positive characteristics of Juana that give her a superior role in the novel despite her silence during most of the narrative. These qualities redeem her humanity as a female in a patriarchal postcolonial world where women are mostly seen as lacking in several human traits and are thus relegated to an inferior subjugated position. Using qualitative thematic analysis, the current article argues that contrary to critical claims about Juana being a stereotyped female character who plays a marginalized character in the novella, her character has a more dominant role in the narrative and has better agency as compared to female characters in other fictional works of Steinbeck.

  • SEMIOTIC ANALYSIS OF THE APPEALING STRATEGIES IN COMMERCIALS: A CASE OF
           THREE PAKISTANI BEAUTY CREAM COMMERCIALS

    • Authors: Ali Siddiqui, Nadir Ali Mugheri, Shahla Anwer Kurd
      Abstract: The aim of this project is to examine the commercials of beauty creams in Pakistan. In order to find the ideology of the beauty advertisements in Pakistan, three renowned beauty commercials were taken for analysis of their discourse. The three beauty creams that are made a part of the critical discourse are Golden Pearl Beauty Cream, Fresh White Beauty Cream and Faiza Beauty Cream. The analysis of discourse was done critically with adoption of Fairclough’s model (1989). The model is well acknowledged in the field of CDA to have an analysis of the employment of specific features in discourse for manipulation of particular ideology within certain class of individuals. It is perceived through beauty cream advertisements to buy the beauty products. The data was collected from the YouTube commercials. The research paradigm was qualitative to highlight the marketing based lingual elements that have been cleverly devised in beauty commercials. The results have revealed that the Pakistani beauty commercials are made to attract the minds of Pakistani women. The findings will help to develop a proper understanding in Pakistani consumers with facilitation in their decision power to buy the products without exploitation of media commercials.
