Abstract: This study explores the theme of betrayal in three of Alice Munro's most recent short stories: "The Love of a Good Woman" (1998), "The Children Stay" (1998) and "To Reach Japan" (2012). It aims at showing the ongoing tension between women's attempts to achieve self-empowerment through acts of betrayal and the omnipresence of their self-willed bodies that stand in the way of the feminine quest for independence.
