Abstract

This paper aims to bring to light the gender issues of oppression and trials faced by women under patriarchy, especially in a conflicting warzone like Afghanistan, through Khaled Hosseini’s novelA Thousand Splendid Suns. The novel is a concise representation of what women have been going through during the past five decades; “Throughout the changing political landscape of Afghanistan in the last fifty years, women's rights have been exploited by different groups for political gain, sometimes being improved but often being abused†(Amnesty International).
