Aqsa Iram Shahzadi


The Study analyses the Pakistani movie ‘Bol’ particularly from the feminist perspective. Qualitative discourse analysis is the method used by the researcher. To analyze feminist ideology five categories (realization of self, concept of patriarchy, challenging patriarchal ideologies, male chauvinism and reproductive rights) are constructed.

Study explores the ways through which ideologies are constructed and manipulated through media.
