4.0 out of 5 stars The book is a fable and examines the role of women in Bangladesh society through the story of Jhumur who is educated and marries May 21 2016
By Vasilisa - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book is quite short and written in simple and straightforward style. The book is a fable and examines the role of women in Bangladesh society through the story of Jhumur who is educated and marries for love, but then is expected to be a traditional Muslim wife and daughter-in-law with the only purpose in life to serve her husband and his family. Although in the end Jhumur somewhat reclaims her personhood and independence by returning to her social life and getting a job, it is only a partial liberation in my opinion. The vehicle through which she gains her independence and respect from her husband’s family is by giving birth to a male child. One has to wonder whether she would have been able to assert herself and gain respect/deterrence from others if her child was female. Overall, this is not the most dramatic or interesting book about the oppression of patriarchy and the plight of women in South Asia, but I still liked it because it gave credible insights into the Bangladeshi culture.
