Abstract

“If women’s bodies and those of men and women who transgress their gender roles have been historically regarded as territories to be conquered, they are also territories to be liberated. Feminism has taught us this. The nationalism that I seek is one that decolonizes the brown and female body as it decolonizes the brown and female earth.”- Cherrie Moraga(1993:150)

Post-colonialism and Feminism are both movements that concern themselves with the study and defence of the marginalised, and have followed a similar theoretical trajectory. “ Feminist and postcolonial theory alike began with an attempt to simply invert prevailing hierarchies of gender, culture, race, and they have each progressively welcomed the poststructuralist invitation to refuse the binary oppositions upon which patriarchal/ colonial authority constructs itself.” (Gandhi, 1998)
