Tahira Jabeen, Amna Noor Hussain, Shahida Khalique, Abdul Hamid, Asma Iqbal.
This study explores the representation of women in Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie at discourse level by using part of Sara Mills toolkit. In this novel, the womans greatest dilemma always concerns her relationship with men, as if the womans worst weakness is her very own attraction and helplessness towards them. Finally, the study reveals that sexism and gender stereotyping are found in the novel, characteristic of the writing of a female author expressing herself as a woman living in a male dominated society.
Key words: Feminist Stylistics; Discourse; Broken Verses; Stereotypes.
