Stevie Jackson and Jackie Jones in their article- Contemporary Feminist Theory said that Jackson says “The concepts of gender and sexuality as a highly ambiguous term, as a point of reference”. Sexual orientation is an intricately planned, socially developed and questionably interrelated gadget utilized not in violation of our spending plan of Women's liberation that considers "sex" as an employable term to conjecture its deconstructive social viewpoints. Helene Cixous notes in Laugh of Medusa that people enter the emblematic request contrastingly and the subject position open to either sex is unique. This difference of entrance points of the marked and un-marked bodies results in variation of rights! Within the corpus of Human Rights, the considerable printed rules include all those entitlements which permits any ‘human being’ to sustain and appreciate the self as an acceptable and floatable being not as an ‘othered and subjugated’ life! The idea, of being recognized and categorized within the binarized construction of either inferior or superior in relation to caste and gender, is somewhat normalized under the framework of birth of the body in and within a specific standard of the ‘brahminical structure of Indian society’. Marginalization has numerous branches of oppression, out of which I prefer discussing how from Feminism the journey top Intersectional Feminism including Gender theory has enriched our comprehension and percepts to visualize the numerous and multiple oppressions taking place. I will therefore discuss selective literary works to showcase the multiple marginalizations of Women.
