In any social set-up, women constitute the marginalised group. Women writers present themselves as an authoritative representative of woman’s consciousness.  Anita Nair, the living woman writer of this century is a feminist with a difference. Few women characters of Anita Nair’s novels commit adultery and sacrilege to fulfil their desires as depicted in The Better Man and Cut Like Wound. As long as Anita Nair’s female characters confine to the leash of social norms and boundaries of women, they experience submission and slavery in their family and in the society. They go against the society to break this bondage.
