Female subjugation in Saadat Hasan Manto


Author(s): Mohit Nimariya

Abstract:
In this Research Paper, a selection of Saadat Hasan Manto’s writings are examined from a feminist perspective. This article delves into the theme of female subjugation in the short stories Colder than Ice, Mozail, and The Return through Munto. With reference to the suffering and mistreatment of women as a main concern of the chosen short stories, it investigates the feminine content. Manto depicted the experiences of women throughout the period of political unrest in the subcontinent, as evidenced through his paintings. He claims that the silence of oppressed women provides a deep understanding of society’s patriarchal underpinnings. In Manto’s Colder than Ice, Mozail, and The Return, exposure to violence plays a key role in challenging the dogmas of race, culture, and ethnicity as well as gender and sexuality. The purpose of the essay is to highlight the abuse and persecution that women experienced during the subcontinent’s split. The current study examines the gendered restrictions and objectification of women in the quest of male sexual gratification in light of feminist philosophy, unravelling that once the silence speaks, women can create their own position in the world.
