  Sima Singh

History of Literature has noticed and observed the role of women being evolved through Centuries. The Journey of Women of Yesterday has been very crucial, scornful, censures which they have handled with poise and patience. Women have endured all the criticism and persisted with their perilous journey. Today Women have come a Long Way emerging as the Strong Fraternity. The following paper discusses the advancement of women from prehistoric period to last ultra-modern period. The paper discusses the women freedom, their problems and concerns described in the literature through the women centric roles. The representation of contemporary women by different female authors is also discussed. Women in the past were expected to be submissive, silent and they were always alleged of being garrulous. Women were forced to meet the expectations of men unwillingly long because of their subordinate status to men in male-dominated society. In Fact, this has to be noticed that in the past most of the published writers were men and the portrayal of women in literature was without doubt prejudiced. The following paper discusses that a accountable reason for this the fact that in the ancient world, literateness was severely restricted, and the maximum of those who could pen were male and they did not perceive women with an approach of grace and gratitude but a mere tool for household activities.

Keywords- women Characterization, type-cast society, liberation.
