Representation of Women and Gender Relations in Six Acres and a Third

In the narrator's statements concerning women in the novel Six Acres and a Third as well as the relationships between female and male characters, author Senapati presents vivid, complex and non-sexist images of rural women. Many of the narrator's comments reveal his society's injustice towards women and the need for change. Senapati's overall critique of social injustice includes women among its victims and his vision for economic and social reform empowers both women and men.
