Womanist Discourse From Margin to Center.: A Critical Analysis of Amma Darko's Beyond the Horizon

Bawa Kammampoal

Abstract


This paper does a critical reading of Amma Darko’s Beyond the Horizon and observes that in her endeavour, the novelist seeks to challenge prevailing patriarchal thrusts which contribute to the dehumanization of women especially, in contemporary times. She concludes that trafficking, human as well as sex, has harrowing effects on the mental, emotional and physical well-being of her female characters who fell in the web of traffickers betrayed by their husbands who forced them into prostitution to serve masculine egoistic tendencies.

Keywords


dehumanize; egoistic tendencies; sexual exploitation; motherhood
