Feminist Perspective of Women A Study of Sefi Atta’s Everything Good Will Come and The Swallow

Abstract Feminist discourse about the economic and social function of housework and its correlation to women’s patriarchal oppression is still pertinent in contemporary Nigerian society and the world at large. This study investigates Sefi Atta’s novel Everything Good will come (2006) to examine the challenges of women who are often limited to the burden of motherhood, unpaid housework and house care thus, inhibiting their chances for independence and equality with men. Furthermore, the literary text evaluates the extent to which housewives are circumscribed and made socially and economically unequal to men through unpaid labor thereby downgrading and subjugating them. The undertaking deploys Marxist Feminism as a theoretical tool to scrutinize patriarchy and capitalism and the position of women within them. Consequently, Sefi Atta’s imaginative work Everything Good will come (2006) articulates an alternative to the patriarchal hierarchical structures of men over women and boys over girls- a configuration which habitually perpetrates male supremacy, power and exploitation. The study reveals how women will have to struggle against manifold patriarchal ethos to bring about their goal for self – accomplishment
