Abstract

This paper argues that femininity and feminist ideologies are not pole-apart in case of Kamala Das or feminism in a broader sense. The treatment of femininity had undergone changes even inside feminist ideologies. This paper will discuss the sharp transition in the treatment of femininity inside feminist theory to situate Kamala Das in a particular ideology of feminism where she belongs, thereby, dismissing all the debates of her being having opposing traits. This will be done by presenting how feminism has gone beyond the over-simplified binary oppositions like femininity/feminism. In short, this paper will show how Kamala Das belongs to a contemporary notion of feminism i.e. the third wave of feminism where both femininity and feminism blend and exist together.

Key words: femininity, feminism, feminine mystique, second wave feminism, third wave feminism, gender, ideology, sexuality
