The literature does bring to us the portrayal of psychological conflict of women but it is also imperative for us to understand that the institution of marriage will stay; the norms governing the patriarchal society may change but will not be re-written for the sake of women alone, the life of women whether in urban or in rural areas are defined by the space that they inhabit. Today’s women are fearless and have learnt to live alone, travel alone, and rear children alone when failures in marriage and life partnerships occur. Thus, can we say the women today is liberated because she has broken the societal norms and wants wings to fly away. The paper attempts to read in between the lines of a few classics and modern literature with relevance to women liberation.
