Abstract
This thesis is concerned with socio – cultural aspects of The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, more accurately, it examines the author’s approach to femininity, the development and characterization of Hester Prynne from a feminist perspective. Furthermore, along with the historical and geographical description of the plot, main emphasis has been placed on the intricate relationship of the characters and their development from the aspect of some of the feminist theories of the 20th century. The goal of the paper is an attempt to prove my own hypothesis on the feminist inclinations of the author himself.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Ovaj završni rad bavi se socijalno – kulturalnim aspektima djela The Scarlet Letter Nathaniela Hawthornea, točnije, promatra autorov pristup ženstvenosti te razvoju i karakterizaciji glavnog lika Hester Prynne sa feminističkog stajališta. Uz historijsko – geografski opis same pozadine radnje, naglasak je stavljen na razvoj i međuodnos ostalih likova primarno gledano kroz aspekte pojedinih feminističkih teorija dvadesetog stoljeća. Cilj istog je pokušaj dokazivanja hipoteze autorovih feminističkih sklonosti.
