Women’s Oppression through Capitalism: A Marxist Feminist Critique of In Other Rooms, Other Wonders
Keywords:Marxism, Capitalism, Feminism, Women’s oppression, Other Rooms, Other Wonders, Marxist feminism
Women have been subjected to oppression and marginalization on social-political grounds, but the economic reason is also an important one. Women are labeled physically incapable of performing tasks at the same level as males. In this context, women are confined to their homes and are not permitted to engage in paid employment outside the home. On the other hand, they are expected to carry out all aspects of domestication and, most significantly, they are responsible for the health and well-being of their husbands. In the first world, these problems have already been solved because of the various feminist movements that have resulted in women gaining equal rights. For example, on social grounds, women have been given equal rights to vote, right to properties, and a great deal of other rights. After some time had passed, women eventually gained access to equal jobs in which they were paid equally. On the other hand, women in the third world still have to fight for their rights, and maybe more crucially, they do not have the right to wages or the ability to make money for themselves. The only space available to women is within their homes, and they are expected to serve their husbands. The Marxist feminist analysis of Daniyal Mueen-ud-deen’s Other Rooms, Other Wonders shows the said projection in a similar design. Marxist feminist theory serves as the theoretical foundation for the investigation. The research shows discrimination against women, and those women are denied the right to work for the simple reason that they are expected to obey men’s instructions.
