Abstract

Feminist Criticism is based on feminism, which is related to the battle of women to accomplish complete equivalence. Many revolutionary women writers urge the destruction of the social structure, where men get more authority than women. They undertake variety of causes among which are the adoption of Equal Rights Amendment, the acquirement of equal pay for equivalent work, the safety of women and their children from abuse by husbands and other men, propagation to equal education and jobs and professional elevation and many other goals.

Feminist writers tend to present their ideas and have the goal of helping the readers to focus on the necessities of women and exposing how women can live productive and fulfilled lives. Women writers also examine issues related to poverty, abuse, gender- based discrimination and so on. They demonstrate attitudes towards women by both women and men. They point out how literature interrogates the ways in which women have been oppressed and exploited. The social conditions, hostile legal provisions, prejudices and other ways in which women are not treated equally with men in literature are pointed out by them. This paper tries to analyze Colleen McCullough’s portrayal of women characters in her select novels.
