Abstract : Revealing the patriarchal discursive elements that shape the core of all human languages has been the mutual concern of the feminist critics in general and with that objective in mind they, to some extent, achieve to establish certain awareness among contemporary women to the constructedness of language and all cultural enterprises in today’s world. Although Greer’s text seems to be arguing the same things as her predecessors do like displaying the male voice embedded in the very language and culture, she also traces the female voice in this male-oriented history and tradition with a closer textual and linguistic analysis. In her famous work The Female Eunuch, she finds the ideal way to overcome this maleorientedness in solidarity among women generated out of, first, an awareness of the false idea of natural female subordination and, then, cooperative revolt by women in all walks of life. However, Pat Barker, in her debut novel The Union Street, frustrates all hopes regarding female solidarity and improvement in the present time.
