SULTANA’S DREAM

180.00 171.00

Sultana’s Dream first appeared in 1905, ten years before the American feminist and novelist, Charlotte P. Gilman, published her feminist utopia Herland. Sultana’s Dream is an appealing story of reversed purdah – the seclusion of women – in Ladyland, where peace-loving women overpower aggressive men through the power of their brains.

Begum Rokheya Sakhawat Hossain, who lived during the last years of colonial rule in East Bengal, was a quiet and determined pioneer of Muslim feminist thought and writing, championing Muslim women’s rights to education and freedom. This was her first full-length work in English.

This edition of Sultana’s Dream is a fascinating dialogue across time and cultures: Durga Bai, a brilliant woman artist from the Gond tribe of central India, has drawn her response to this hundred-year old feminist fable. She delights in drawing women in a variety of situations.
