. This study focuses on exploration of valuable works of Uma Narayan, which represent a shift from Western models of feminism towards multicultural, postcolonial and transnational feminism. Since its conceptualization, feminism has developed from orientation solely on Western understanding of feminist and cultural concerns to analysis and critique of complex issues of gender and cultural essentialism and awareness of interrelation of major political concepts with race, ethnicity, social class, and gender in different cultural settings
