Abstract
The recent spurt of attempts into the study of folklore and gender studies have opened up new standpoints and provided for novel perspectives, questioning the conventional take into these areas. Gender perspective is inevitably occupied a significant place in the academic domain of folklore. Various facts of folklore can be analyzed by use of the gender perspective. In this research paper, an analysis is attempted on the state of women in the well-known Assamese folktale entitled ‘Mekurir Jiyekar Sadhu’ (The Tale of the Cat’s Daughter) from the collection of folktales ‘Burhi Aair Sadhu’, by the celebrated Assamese author Lakshiminath Bezbaruah. The analysis primarily concentrates on the gender perspective in the select folktale from the folktales collection ‘Burhi Aair Sadhu’.

Key words: Assamese Folktale, Female Character, Gender Perspective, Gender Studies, Male Dominance, Patriarchal Society
