Summary:

This work first defines the feminist movement and its waves in the West. After that, will follow a description of the feminist movement in the Soviet Union and the Arab world. Also in the first part, I will try to relate about the distinction between feminist literature and women writing finishing by selecting some literary texts as examples of feminist literature. The second part is about one of the famous English feminist writers Doris Lessing, taking her novel The Golden Notebook as the main example of feminist writing. I will focus mainly on the feminist discourse in the novel by exploring the political, religious, and social aspects in her writing. The third section is dedicated to analyze Al-Dulaimi's novel Ladies of Saturn, also focused on the feminist discourse on religious, political and social issues. I will try to identify the 12 ideologies that she may have followed. Also, I will reveal the messages in her novel meant for her readers. The last part analyzes and covers all common aspects from both novels, the similarities and differences in style of both novelists together with any evident and possible ideological influences on both writers.
