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.
