Abstract

This study critically examines the manifestation of gender differences in Pakistani society through the lens of women’s writings. Pakistani society is marked by deeply entrenched patriarchal norms and gender disparities that affect women’s lives in various ways. This research explores how Pakistani women writers use their literary works to challenge these gender disparities and expose the limitations imposed upon them by society. The study employs a qualitative research approach and analyzes a range of literary works authored by Pakistani women, including novels, short stories, and poetry. By examining these works, the study aims to provide a deeper understanding of the ways in which gender roles and inequalities are constructed and reproduced in Pakistani society. The findings of the study suggest that women writers in Pakistan are using their voices to resist patriarchal norms, subvert gendered power structures, and create a space for themselves within a society that often seeks to marginalize them. The study concludes by suggesting that the insights gained through this research can help promote greater gender equality and social justice in Pakistan.
