The contemporary literature presents a beautiful narration of social, socio-political, socio-economic condition and cultural history of women in modern perspectives. Women are the integral parts of the human society but they have been allocated a secondary place in it. Since ancient time women have been victimized mentally as well as physically due to the patriarchal social order but in the modern perspective the concept of traditional role of women is weakening day by day. The participation of women in each and every field reflects the emergence of new women. The changing images of women from the suffering women to the assertive ones, are beautifully documented in the novels of Anita Nair. This paper attempts to focus on the women’s predicament and socio-economic condition in the modern perspective.
Keywords: Socio-political, socio-economic, patriarchal, emergence, predicament, modern perspective, victimized etc.
