This research analyses the issue of marginalized women related to the matter of class and gender. Using Gayatri Spivak’s theory of Subaltern, this paper also uses Deconstruction as the method to analyse. By deconstruncting Hosseini’s text, this paper will address these issues by seeing how each women character is represented, and analyze the relation between the women characters as well as with the male character in the story. This paper then will reveal the ideology associated with the problems of women in social class and more specifically on the role, burden and position of the "marginalized" women or “the Subaltern”. In the end the novel shows how the marginalized women in the story are being represented as those who will always be discriminated by gender and class, and are continually being ‘silenced’—the upperclass ideology.
