Divided into two sections, the thesis speaks for women, attempting to give voices to the voiceless buried around the world. The first is a collection of vignettes inspired by personal experience. Each piece attempts to capture an aspect of the Bangladeshi society affected by its history, emphasizing the failure to be affected, while exploring the inner conflict of the narrator returning to her motherland as a US citizen, moderately independent. The second section is inspired by true stories and personal experience. It is a collection of stories about women, exploring cultural boundaries, political, religious, and moral issues from national and international perspectives. Combined, they try to arrive at the cost of independence in an attempt to realize its worth in this confusing world that we call our own.
