The term 'feminism' has been' derived from the Latin term Femina' that means 'woman' and 'ism is a stream of thoughts. Thereby the movement that raises the issue  of woman's equality and rights and champions liberty, equality and rights for woman in all walks of life: literary, social political familial and economic, is called  feminism. This term was discussed by Alice Rossi, an American writer, in Athenaum on 27 April 1895. Ever since it has been widely used. It is raised by west female writer in literature that women have the same talent as to write as men. The male writers showed male characters dominant and female submissive in their writings. Feminists believe that the work that is written by a man can also be written by a woman with the same capacity and skill. The male patriarchy limits the creative power of a woman assigning her domestic duties within walls.
