Corrosive, Existentialist, Iconoclast, Immigrant


This paper aims to clarify the various representations of women that Indian-English women authors have offered. When it comes to women in Indian culture and tradition, independence, the pursuit of character, fighting, and the spirit of resistance have all remained foreign concepts. With the introduction of women's rights, however, Indian women's essayists have innately understood the worries and presented women as someone who battles against the cover-up and abuse of a man-centered society. Their paintings show how the advanced-age Indian woman is caught between tradition and innovation as she deepens her life and identity in her own unique manner.
