Abstract

Ismat Chugtai is one of the most accomplished Indian writers. She is known for her progressive, feminist, bold writing style. Chugtai’s short stories revolve around the odds faced by women. In most of her works she raises a serious concern towards the unjust treatment of women. The phrase personal is political is a clear hint towards the social concerns she explored in her writing. Chugtai’s writing reflects her ideology of female body as a site of women’s oppression and that every aspect of female identity and struggle is controlled by female sexuality. She sensitively highlights the politics of the private sphere such as home marriage and sexuality apart from social evils like ignorance, illiteracy, orthodoxy and abuse of women.

 

Key Words

Marriage, Identity, Female Sexuality, Oppressive Domesticity
