This thesis deals with gender analysis of selected stories by DinkoŠimunović. The aim of the study is to assess whether Šimunović tends to change his readers’ attitudes related to gender inequality of women and men in society and also to discover how this obtained information can be used in teaching. A total of six short stories are chosen for the analysis, and these are Muljika, Duga, Alkar, Rudica, Ljubavand Đemo. The analytical framework developed for the purpose of the research consists of selected critical and pedagogical concepts. These are concepts of discrimination, emancipation, power, domination, social inequality as well as sexual and gender identity. In addition, we have identified recurring motifs in the stories and thereby assist in highlighting gender issues, such as education, characters’ relationship with their community, tragic end, et cetera. The results of the analysis show that Šimunović really did critically look at gender inequality and this is demonstrated in his short stories. This can be seen in the descriptions of the characters who question the biological foundation of patriarchy; the compassion that discrimination against women causes in the reader; in the feelings of remorse experienced by characters who treated others unjustly because of their sex and so on. Based on the given results, we also include a proposal teaching unit in the thesis which deals with gender issues in Šimunović’sMuljika. The teaching unit is presented with the help of a third year high school reader, but also suggestions and questions, that are not in the reader but were found to be useful when dealing with gender issues, were added to the unit.
