The present paper tries to analyse the study of selective works of Indian writers in English with a purpose of exploring the space for women in patriarchal society. Indian English writings by women attempt to tussle with living realities of women of various strata of society and endeavour to project life in all its complexities. Women writers have proved themselves as silent protesters. They have given vent to their feelings of protest in their poetry. In pre-independent India, Toru Dutta, Sarojini Naidu and a host of other poets produced the best kind of poetry. Meena Alexander and Sujata Bhatt have written poetry on their surroundings. Kamal Dass pours out her sensual longings, frustrations, humiliations and triumphs in her poems.
