AbstractThe present research investigates the struggle of female entities throughout their lives in a maledominated society, either acting in congruity or incongruity with the norms and set patterns of the
society in order to get societal acceptance or to assert their sovereign individual-selves. The American
society that is full of discrimination victimizes the race of Blacks in general and Black women in
particular. As a result, the oppressed and subjugated woman has suffered as the 'Other' in American
society during and after the era of slavery. The present research has delineated the existential conflicts
of the Black female and the submissive or assertive behaviors they adopt to survive as free individuals.
It is a qualitative research of Toni Morrison’s novel that has been critically analyzed. The novel, A Sula
has been analyzed by using the lens of the Feminist Conceptual Framework, and feminine existential
issues have been discussed under the umbrella of Feminist Existentialism. The present study is expected
to be a significant one because it highlights different situations of the individuals in which they can
redirect their destiny by actively participating as 'subjects' or passively submitting as 'Objects'.
