dc.description.abstract Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain is a prominent writer whose creative vent of mind gives rise to many important writings deserving attention from serious readers especially those thinking about the inequality of gender. Her firsthand experience as a woman has given her the fuel for writing about women’s issues. In her writings, she portrays the overall miserable condition of the women of her time and tries to give a solution of the problem. This paper deals with three writings by Rokeya: namely Sultana’s Dream, Padmarag and Abarodhbashini, where she tries to portray the bleak condition of womanhood and visualize the liberty of women. Condition of women has always been a matter of concern for Rokeya, and so, her dreams of liberating women from the shackles of patriarchy have been inalienably designed with intricate plots and stylistic features in her writings. In my research paper, I would like to explore Rokeya’s sincere visions regarding the overall development of her own gender through proper schooling and economic solvency. I have applied the feminist approach of literary theory in my research for a better understanding. en_US
