Abstract

Literature asserted itself to be an intellectual imitator to life for generations in this earth that has voiced the voiceless. The recent modern and postmodern literary ideas have changed the whole scenario of the literature. One of the contemporary issues is the gender inequality. Writers across the globe wrote about every burning issue of their times. One among such issues is gender inequality. Some of the writers had suffered with this menace of the society themselves and have lightened this menace very keenly and acutely in their works. This gender inequality was a result of illusions both in the family and society about its members. These writers remained an active reformist to bring a social change in the society. Throughout their journey they worked for this deprived classes of the society. This research paper attempts to bring out all the elements of gender inequality, the agony and the pain suffered by these members around the globe through the lenses of fiction.
