ABSTRACT:

Women from ages have been treated as a secondary sex. Initially, women accepted this as their fate and used to be submissive and subjugated. But in the late 19th and early 20th century, women realised that God created them equal to their male counterparts and they deserve the same equal status like the men. Since then, women have been fighting for their rights and status. The struggle started long back, but still women didn’t achieve the equality. In most parts of the world, women are still considered to be a commodity whose fate is decided by the males in her life. She is dependent on the male all her life which develops in her a sense of inferiority complex and she has no identity of her own. In this paper, the researcher will try to explore the struggle of two women with the same name Rose from the novels, The Beggar Maid written by Alice Munro and Women are Different by Flora Nwapa. Both the protagonists have the same name but lives in two completely different parts of the world i.e. Canada and Nigeria. Both the Roses’ even though living in different parts of the world gets connected through the pain they suffer because of gender discrimination. The researcher will try to explore that both these novels not only depict the sufferings of the women but also their emancipation which they achieved at the end.
