Women Identity, Manju Kapur


In the realm of literature, feminism can be understood as the liberation of women both physically and psychologically from the longstanding societal constraints that have been predominantly established by men. Throughout history, notably in Asian nations such as India, societal norms and traditions have predominantly been influenced by male dominance. The literary works of Manju Kapur extend beyond merely highlighting the limitations imposed on women. Instead, they delve into a diverse array of topics, including but not limited to issues related to identity crises, personal fulfillment, and interpersonal relationships.
