Abstract for SOCIO-CULTURAL ISSUES AND THE QUEST FOR FEMALE GENDER: SUBSTANTIAL CHALLENGES IN SEFI ATTA’S EVERYTHING GOOD WILL COME
The relation between individuals and their socio-cultural environment set the limits of their identities. These ways of life are altered and can be influenced by cultural and environmental situations. Sefi Atta’s Everything Good Will Come reveals the dynamic diversity in accordance with the social class. This situation leads to misunderstanding by changing people’s relationship into prevalent problems. This work highlights women’s quests and exposes the unfairness in the patriarchal system whereby female characters are subjugated. The critical lens through which I will be looking at the text is womanist criticism. This analysis will yield a positive outlook on women’s ability to become self-sufficient and challenge social strains.
