Female Representation In Select Travel Writings: A Critical Reading

Abstract From the advent of the twenty first century onwards, travel has become a culture along with the development of tourism as a recreation, an escape from the chaotic work schedules of the modern world, and also the increase in the desire for adventures and exploration. But the world of travel is also gender biased and women are far behind men in terms of getting travel opportunities, their travel narratives are often neglected. Seldom women venture into travel individually, of course with group travel especially to some pilgrimage places like Aadhiparashakiti temple, Tirichandur Murugan shrine and so on. This research paper aims a comparison between Anees Jung's Unveiling India and G. Willow Wilson's The Butterfly Mosque. The study reveals two distinct perspectives on the experiences of Muslim women in different parts of the world. While both books explore the complexities of identity, culture, and religion, they differ in terms of their tone, style, and focus. Both books can be read as the collective experience of women in two different parts of the world.
