A Feminist Reading of Easterine Kire’s Mari


  • Tarulata Pegu


The representations of women in literature are biased and are appropriated by men. This led the writers of the feminist tradition to find out the cause of their secondary position in society. Inequalities between the sexes are not new in human history. In this respect, the North East women writers have their unique contribution to the progress and emancipation of women. Easterine Kire is one among such writers who were not behind to share the experiences of tribal women of her Naga community. This is what exactly Kire has done in her thought-provoking novel Mari (2010). It recounts the story of her aunt Mari during World War II. The war has crafted a newly emancipated woman out of her. The study attempts to examine the work from feminist perspectives. The study will highlight how despite all the adversities and difficulties Mari rose above her situations and like a true feminist she decides to pursue her dream and become an independent individual with her philosophies of life.
