Abstract:   (871 Views)
Selina Hossain is a distinguished contemporary female writer from Bangladesh. Being a recognized feminist voice, Hossain delineates gender issues in her literary works. This paper is a humble attempt to study Hossain’s Ghumkature Ishwar with a view to focusing her portrayal of sisterhood - a term used by feminists to express the connection of women who are bonded in solidarity. Characters like Ruposhi and Shorishafuli, Shukjan and other village women, and Lutfunnisa, Romela and Zaheda form sisterhood in the novel that sometimes gives them a space of their own, shows the power their bond and helps them to survive in the patriarchal spider-web.
