Abstract

Exposing the exploitation of women in a capitalistic setup is the fundamental premises of Marxist Feminism. It believes that much of women suffering are caused because of their economic dependency on a society that neither offers equal job opportunities to women on par with men, nor compensates them with equal wages. The abuse of power and the reality of economic dependency for survival, especially for a woman form the core of any Marxist Feministic discourse. This forms the themes of many of Caryl Churchill’s plays which revolve round the life of women who are caught in the vicious circle of economic dependency. Her play, Fen (1983), is one such work which stages the miserable life of a community of women that exists on picking potatoes, and finding no escape from the dreary life of hardship and abuse. The objective of this paper is to analyse how she portrays women as a projection of her Marxist Feministic beliefs.
