Feminism is an ideological and social movement that strives to achieve complete liberation
for women. In literature many writers consciously as well as unconsciously encapsulated
exploitative male domination. In the end of nineteenth century and beginning of twentieth
century pragmatically established “her voice” on diverse strands. Voicing against the
patriarchal society took intense base from history, spiritual, biological and potentials.
Consequently her voice is unbounded to the desired equality but questioning the victimization
and rewriting the history to promote women voice. “Her- voice” is an understanding of
women concerns like sexuality, language, politics, equity, patriarchal bias, marriage and
biological differences, coordinated in the literary feminism.
