Abstract

. This study assesses The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy from a feminist standpoint. Roy fights against injustice towards women, whose rights are infringed upon in various ways. Roy is repositioning women in Indian society, where they are neglected and oppressed despite their hard labor and duties because of the unequal allocation of power, which renders them inferior, weaker, and dependent. Roy recounts the past while giving women's aspirations, frustrations, and anxieties a voice. Because of their marginalization within the patriarchal social structure, women are often faced with a choice between following social norms and their own intelligence Their attempt to disobey societal laws ends up backfiring on them. Women in Indian society are making an effort to break traditional norms. Their fundamental rights are taken from them. The study's theoretical framework is established in of Feminist Marxist. Marxist feminists contend that the fundamental source of women's oppression in the contemporary social setting is private property, which also leads to economic disparity, reliance, and political and home conflict between the sexes. In order to demonstrate that the patriarchal social structure is the primary source of women's exploitation, this research paper analyzes the text in the context of Marxist-Feminism.
