Abstract: This thesis discusses the injustice and tyranny practiced by the capitol of Panem towards the districts, focusing on the signs of the coming rebellion led by the youth in The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games is a dystopian novel which presents a post apocalyptic vision of what used to be North America, telling the story of 16 year old rebellious Katniss Everdeen. Suzanne Collins discusses indirectly the issues of current society in her book to send a message urging people to change. The novel has subverted the general understanding of male hero and created a new image of a rebellious heroine. This study analyses the political message in Collins’ novel and places Katniss in spotlight and analyses the book from an ecofeminist perspective which maintains a special bond between women and nature. Katniss is a perfect illustration of the determined, powerful woman who rebels against the patriarchal order in the hegemonic, male dystopia. Thus, this thesis aims to investigate the signs that led Katniss to rebel against the capitol and also to reveal an environmental role in relation with the female protagonist.
