Alice Munro is one of the most consummate fiction writers of the English language from Canada. The present study, Breaking the Silence: Unveiling the Sexism in Alice Munro’s Narrative Realms, makes a humble attempt at developing the art of the Canadian born contemporary master of the short story. Through her first anthology of short stories, Dance of the Happy Shades, Alice Munro presents the life she has seen, experienced, and lived since her childhood. Incidentally, this volume won her Canada’s most fêted Governor General's Award in 1968. During the five decades of her career as a short fiction writer, she won many such awards before she was crowned with the Nobel Prize in 2013. This critical study throws light on the portrayal of women's social and cultural experiences in a country that has been the home of immigrants from diverse countries. Munro also relates her feminist concerns in the portrayal of women with the general social life.
