Abstract

The female textual body ascribes the female body more worth than a mere biological object and explores the masculine perception of evaluating women  in relation to their body as ‘ vessels of fertility’ needed for sustenance of individual families and collective humanity. This research paper explores the female protagonists in Shauna Singh Balwin’s novel What the Body Remembers as symbols of female textual body in the discourse of gender.
