Nynu V Jamal

The objective of the paper is to focus on the feminist message as articulated in Desai’s novel, Cry, the Peacock. The intent is to examine critically how in the post- modern era Indian women writers in English have highlighted women's questions. The paper also traces the rise of the feminist movement and scrutinizes the concerns of the ‘second sex’ as presented in Desai’s novel foregrounding the need of feminism in the Indian context.
