The Good of Small Things is regarded as a novel of protest against injustice and oppression on women & subaltern. Arundhati Roy deliberately wrote this novel in order to question and liberate the age old Indian society of patriarchal dominance and supremacy. With this objective in view to awakening public awareness in support of oppressed and humiliated women, she focuses particularly and specifically on the predicament of social injustice and torture meted out to women in their martial and familial situations. Roy Skillfully delineates the various scenes and incidents of physical and emotional torture inflicted upon the helpless and powerless women in their state of adversity and suffering. Throughout The God of Small Things, Roy champions the cause of oppressed women and espouses their rebellious sentiments and outrage resulting in reaction against the injustice and oppression suffered by them.
