Monica Ali’s Brick Lane – Fiction, Yet Relevant: The Plight of Bangladeshi Women from a Fictive Perspective
Kristianstad University, School of Teacher Education.

Abstract [en]

This essay focuses on the topics of sexism and the function of gender and oppression in Monica Ali’s Brick Lane. Instances in the novel are related to real world incidents in order to show how Ali, in spite of her Western upbringing and perspective, has accurately depicted several problematical cases of injustice in Muslim culture. Even though Ali has been criticized for her, supposedly, incorrect portrayal of Bangladeshis in London, this essay will argue that the topics of the novel remain relevant in the larger scheme of Muslim society.
