Abstract: Ecofeminism is a philosophical and social movement that combines elements of feminism and environmentalism. It seeks to explore and address the interconnectedness of issues related to gender, ecology, and social justice. The core belief of ecofeminism is that the exploitation and oppression of both women and the environment are linked and stem from similar systems of power and domination. Arundhati Roy’s novel The God of Small Things is set in the state of Kerala in India and showcases diverse social, and cultural backgrounds. portrays the interconnectedness between women and nature. It highlights the parallels between the domination and exploitation of nature and the subjugation of women in patriarchal societies. The paper intends to focus on the aspect of societal and cultural diversity and its relationship with the forces of oppression depicted in the novel against women and nature. The goal will be to study the complex interplay between human relationships, societal structures, and the environment to devalue diversity.


Keywords: Ecofeminism, oppression, diversity, domination, ecology
