The Transfiguration of the Woman’s Body: A Study of Holy Bible and The Woman’s Bible

Yanjiao Chang, Jiayin Wang, Xiaoming Tian


This article employs the method of critical discourse analysis to study the changing portrayal of the woman’s body. Our analysis shows the ways in which the woman’s body is constructed as silent, instrumentalized, sinful, and unclean in Holy Bible under the dominance of male discourses. Then we examined how the woman’s body is reconstructed as an independent and glorified entity in The Woman’s Bible, along with the subversion of male discourses by feminist renditions thereof. The study has implications for women who are fighting for their bodily rights.
