Abstract

Difficult Daughters was written by ManjuKapur, which won the Commonwealth Writer’s Prize, the best first book in Europe and South Asia. The plot is knotted around the societal system that divides women from their basic rights. The three-generation aperture is met by wed locks that drift the very living of women. Manju Kapur often touches on the theme of a male-dominated community that doesn’t let women thrive on their needs and wants after marriage. This study gazes at the societal regimes which outcast women and the hardships they go through if they take the high road of educating themselves.
