Aubrey (korrick) | 2004 comments Sultana's Dream and Selections from The Secluded Ones, Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, nonfiction selections translated from Bangla by Roushan Jahan, 1905, Bangladesh, SHORT STORY/NONFICTION

"...Through a dream, the narrator visits a country run by women where the men are hidden; on her tour she sees gardens everywhere, a transportation system that is efficient, and kitchens that are clean and pleasant to work in. When the narrator questions her guide about how this happened, the guide challenges her: "Why do you allow yourselves to be shut up?...You have neglected the duty you owe to yourself and you have lost your natural rights by shutting your eyes to your own interests."..."

(H.S., p. 282)
