Brick Lane

Throughout reading the book, 2 things really stood out to me. Not only is this book a huge cultural piece, but it is also a huge feminist piece. They play hand in hand. Her culture is responsible for her view of women and the role Nazneen believes they play. She is transplanted in a westernized culture, but her role as a woman still doesn’t change. This goes to show that the oppression of women is so deeply ingrained in the Bengali culture, that even changing the setting does not help. A lot of people read this up front as a cultural piece, but it is important to see it also as a feminist piece.
