The Representation of Women at in Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie: A
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.
