Abstract


Multicultural society in the United States is depicted as a mosaic, composed of a variety of races and
ethnic groups that have always been different from one another. Some people argue that multiculturalism
may undermine solidarity. The designation African-American, Native-American, Asian-American,
Hispanic-American, and many more to certain groups of people in a society may cause hostility or
even disintegration. Sui Sin Far in Its Wavering Image expresses her dissenting opinions. She who
supports diversity which is the main issue in America asserts that cultural differences have always
existed. A person can be an American and can still be able to maintain another cultural identity. She
believes that all human beings are born free and are equal in dignity and rights. Thus, those who live
in a heterogeneous society can be considered as a dignified society. Multicultural feminism theory is
applied to identify the inequalities induced by cultural, racial, ethnic, and sexual diversity.
