Originally I was thinking about comparing Victorian morals to Middle Eastern moral values today, but I knew that that wasn't exactly the most attention-grabbing paper topic. It wasn't until we started undergoing all the research for this paper that I came up with a more interesting paper topic that I would like to research--why people take male authors more seriously in feminist literature. When I started thinking about it, I noticed that there are many female authors that wrote under male pseudonyms (JK Rowling-her initialized name sounds androgynous, so really people don't know if she's male or female if they were just given "JK Rowling;" she also wrote under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith when she published The Cuckoo's Calling, then there are the Brontë sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, who wrote under Currer, Ellis and Acton. Also, we can't forget Mary Anne Evans writing under the name of George Elliot.) Although Khaled Hosseini is definitely a male author writing about female problems in society, I want to explore all angles of the male author writing about feminism, and why female writers can't write about feminism and still be taken seriously.
At any rate, I have a lot of more research and perspectives to look into. See my paper shell here.
