Men writing Women Constructions of Femininity through the Perspective of Men and the Quest to do Gender Well

Haifaa Mohammad [2] | Aaliya Ahmed


Abstract: Gender differences in language have been of interest to researchers because these differences are assumed to explain, in part, the nature of relationships between men and women. The primary explanation for these differences is the use of dominant and submissive roles by males and females. The folk linguistic assumptions such as; women are more talkative than men (chattering women), or men interrupt women more, have been among the controversial topics in gender studies. At the same time, in almost all the literature written in different social and cultural communities, we can find some writing of men in favor of women?s issues or at least highlighting their problems in the mostly patriarchal societies. Some male writers have presented powerful, very influential and realistic female characters throughout the history of world literature. This paper analyses the author, Mohsin Hamid's Female protagoinist in Exit west to conclude that an authentic potrayal of the feminine experience is obtained which is evident in his writing.
