comparative analysis of emecheta’s second class citizen and nwapa’s efuru

Abstract: This research work examines a comparative analysis of Emecheta’s Second Class Citizen and Nwapa’s Efuru. The study shows that feminism is an ideology that provides a platform for equality between men and women in the society. It is also a political movement toward the eradication of cultural and men’s inflictions to the women. As feminist writers, Emecheta and Nwapa portray these cultural issues affecting their fellow women in African society like domestic violence, gender discrimination, oppression, subjugation, sexual abuse, humiliation and patriarchal domination by their male counterparts. As feminist writers, their writings exposed these issues, for the betterment of the society and unity.

From the findings, the researcher recommends that feminism as a socio-political movement that geared towards the recognition of the potentials of women as human beings, the women should be given equal opportunities with their male counterpart in various areas of human activities and eradicate the issue of patriarchal domination by the men because from creation time, down to the message in the Holy Bible, husbands should love their wives and treat them with care, while the same source admonished women to submit to their husbands in all manners.
