dc.description.abstract iv Abstract: This project is about how the Empowering notion is depicted in Maya Angelou's work, and how she herself can be considered an Empowered woman. In Maya Angelou’s autobiographical novel “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”, the author identifies as a black woman, her trials and tribulations with the other sex as well as the other race; manifesting the existence of Black woman’s entity that persists against the biases of society, young Maya struggles against terrible odds to establish her identity as she grows up into a young woman. Her suffering is worsened by a double burden; she is Black and female. These aspects work against her, but she manages to overcome the obstacles they place in her way, and gradually develops a sense of who she is. In order to analyze these matters, a thoroughly analysis and interpretation will be made of Angelou’s novel. To accomplish these aims, Feminist Psychoanalytical theory will be taken into account, and thus, the second part of this project will be dedicated to illustrate the diffrent dimensions of the work from a womanist standpoint regarding the psychological influence. Accordingly, the final conclusion will be drawn that Maya Angelou is an Empowered woman who defies as a Black woman with her writtings the prejudices of society; chiefly, race and gender inequalities in order to break the patriarchal rule number one: women should be submissive and passive. en_US
