Renegotiating the Patriarchal Bargain and the Embodiment of Womanhood

Roles that had previously been within their marital patriarchal bargain are actively challenged and renegotiated, through consumption. Our findings also indicate the boundaries that gender and the body are negotiatable within acculturation.
