抄録: This article attempts to delineate contours of culturally-constructed/ -constrained agency of women from Yolmo, Nepal by examining their narratives around their experiences of marriage. A conspicuous feature of their narratives is that most of them deny their own agency for marriage – they assert that they were married off by their parents without their consent or even with all their resistance, while some of them in fact could be safely presumed to have been positively involved in realizing her marital contract.What accounts for this effacement of oneʼs own agency, for one thing, lies in the structure of Yolmo marital practice. The hegemonic arrangement prescribes woman as something asked for by groomʼs party and given by her guardiansʼ party. Womanʼs will or agency is officially accorded no place here and accordingly extremely difficult to be articulated even by herself. For another thing, this effacement does speak of their agency at work on the site of narrative-production. Through denying her own positive commitment for marriage, she constitutes herself as “a good Yolmo woman”, a woman who does not speak up for herself in the process of contracting her own marriage. One should note here that there were some women, minor as they may be, who did admit her own positive part in marriage, thereby acting subversively against this dominant construct of “good Yolmo woman”. But it should not be overlooked that these seemingly subversive narratives were in fact neatly contained in the appropriate context of informal all-female circle, where deviance can be readily tolerated or even celebrated, only to maintain hegemonic gendered structure in which womenʼs own voice remains unspeakable.
