AbstractSociety formulates gender stereotypes after a constant practice. Male and female are given typical traditional roles according to previous practice. The result of these practices shows that women have always been assigned negative roles and they are projected negatively i.e. emotionally unstable, sexually weak and irrational etc. This paper aims to see these traditional roles and to challenge these roles to give salvation to the female sex by using the frame work of feminist and gender theorists. The text of “In other rooms, other wonders” by Daniyal Moenudeen is analyzed by using the text analysis and qualitative research technique in research to feminist and gender theories. The results of the present research show that the society is still practicing the traditional gender roles as it is evident by the social practices of the male and female characters. Women have been projected as others different from men. They are acting within a given premises given by male. They are trying to break the silence imposed by men on them.
