Author: Begum Rokheya Sakhawat Hossain; Artist: Durga Bai
Sultana’s Dream first appeared in 1905, ten years before the American feminist and novelist, Charlotte P. Gilman, published her feminist utopia Herland. Sultana’s Dream is an appealing story of reversed purdah – the seclusion of women – in Ladyland, where peace-loving women overpower aggressive men through the power of their brains.
This edition of Sultana’s Dream is a fascinating dialogue across time and cultures: Durga Bai, a brilliant woman artist from the Gond tribe of central India, has drawn her response to this hundred-year old feminist fable, adding a new layer of meaning to a classic text. Price: $ 8.95
