Using two texts by women of colour, this paper examines the marginalized bodies of the oppressed due to the pervasiveness of ideology in the construction of societies, bodies, and texts. The body is always a product of ideology, and ideology is itself a product of society. The idea of utopia is brought in to illuminate the inescapability of ideology, which leads to the two authors to re-write the bodies in their texts through the means of subversion and transgression in order to posit a subjective voice within the limitations.
