Abstract

Reclassifying society as 'a dynamic and advancing element of human activity', women's activists stretch that societies are not static, building up the steady need to examine them, both in inborn and far off settings, to be specific when women are put in their quick social settings or when they relocate to another setting conveying their societies along, wherein the two occasions involve different articulations and understandings. Arundhati Roy’s feminist novel The God of Small Things is an apt portrayal of women put under subjugated social settings. It is a farsighted discourse of our own not too distant. The present study explores suppression of women caused by cultural and societal construct in the novel The God of Small Things to fill the gaps in the current literature through a qualitative, exploratory and interpretative approach. The God of Small Things exquisitely illustrates the cultural and societal constructions that constitute women’s subjugation. This paper is based upon a radical perspective of feminism that aspires to signify the depiction of cultural feminism in the feminist literature through the novel The God of Small Things. Thereof, it equally aims to highlight the significance of radical feminism as a new form of feminism that is representative of the contemporary society.
