David Herbert Lawrence is an important British novelist in the twentieth century and is regard as a man of genius. His greatness lies not only in his exploration in the bisexual relationship, but more in his depiction of women images concerning their nature and future. His attitude towards women is always the focus of argument. Some regard him as a male chauvinist while some regard him as a feminist colleague. This paper is to analyze Lawrence’s attitude towards women in a developmental angle. Lawrence’s exploration in women’s nature and future can be divided into three stages. The characterization of women images in each stage is closely related to Lawrence’s attitude toward women. The process that Lawrence creates his women images is also the process that he explores their aspiration and pursuit, and the process that Lawrence changes his attitude towards women.
