It is undeniable that female empowerment is imperative. More importantly, the establishment of feminist movements has created a platform for women to assemble as a community to combat the patriarchal system that continues to exist in society. Consequently, women uniting to dispute sexism, acknowledges a component that can hinder their progress and success in society. Yet, this idea of feminism is over simplified, it disregards the diverse and intricate experiences women face in actuality. Therefore, the consequence of generalizing the feminist political practice results in an assumption that women uniformly experience a single oppression, this ignores the reality of the multiple oppressions women can encounter.
The Gender violence is so deep rooted in a woman’s lifetime, that freedom from the threat of harassment, battering, and sexual assault is a concept that most of woman have a hard time imagining because violence is such an extensive part of the culture and their spirits. General economic dependence on their families and fear of social ostracization act as a significant deterrent for a woman. Poverty, inability to express, homelessness, isolation from family and friends and many other things contribute to the victimization of the women in society.

This further leads to the characters offering a confession subconsciously to make them feel responsible for their immorality. All of this is displayed through the ominous and rather supernatural character of Inspector Goole. Priestley uses the Inspector as a projection of his views on socialism to indicate its superiority over capitalism. The Inspector described the individuals of community as “members of one body”.

For Nietzsche, it is a moral principle that involves self – sacrifice. It was from a stern ideal because it betrays oneself from life. In his The Genealogy of Morality, he offers a new critique of moral values through an investigation of the origin. He states that moral values originated from the ‘pathos’ of ancient people which also gave rise to the concept of ‘bad’.

Feminism is about getting equal rights and opportunities for women and allowing women to have control over their lives and bodies. Many people believe that women have been disadvantaged and mistreated since ancient times and men have had more power than women. I have selected the three very interesting novels and they are Eleven minutes by Paulo Coelho (Brazil), The Red Tent by Anita Diamant (United States) and Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (United Kingdom). These all novels are based on the three different time periods through which we can see the role of women in society and family since the ancient times to the contemporary times. Eleven Minutes Paulo Coelho’s Eleven Minutes is a journey of a young Brazilian woman, Maria who always dreamt of her prince charming, fallen in love several times but always left heartbroken.

Celie suffers over thirty years of physical and mental abuse.

Coetzee which speaks about the hardships of the protagonists during the time of war. It is significant to note that the author has spoken so clearly the issues faced by women in both the novels with the sense of powerlessness that remains within the feminine population.

Bharati Mukherjee’s writings are usually regarding the experiences of migration and matters pertaining to it. She covers the issues relating to the status, sense of estrangement and numerous other psychological mayhems of the immigrants. By and large she focuses on South Asian women in her writings and especially Indian women. Bharati Mukherjee provides readers to take the challenge boldly against the traditional frame work of the society and to turn her way towards a new consciousness of her own worth and place in the society. She endorses the cause of women similar to her modern-day feminist writers, but she stands out from them as her fundamental concern is to demarcate the difficulties of cross cultural battles that the Indian women immigrants encounter.
