Abstract

 

Black feminists reminded the other feminists, about the realities of racism. The key concept of the paper in this regard is to pose the question on whether Janie Crawford, Neal's protagonist in Their Eyes were Watching God, adheres to the fixed concept of gender or she rather questions it. The study also examines whether there is any sign in the novel which indicates that she breaks the rule and constructs herself and her identity not according to the structures of power in society but as an autonomous being. To probe this question, the paper maps Janie's journey through life in terms of her gender and its relation to the surrounding and demonstrates that race is a complicated issue to tackle as a key way to challenging outsiders in her community.

Key Words: Gender, Black, White, Community, Culture, Racism, Feminsm, Identity
