A STUDY OF PSYCHOLOGICAL TRAUMA IN SUDHA MURTHY’S GENTLY FALLS THE BAKULA
Feminism has gathered momentum all over the world standing up for female emancipation, clamouring for equal rights and social justice. Feminism has gone through I wave, II wave, III wave, with the different stages of resistance, protests and confrontations, inviting unequal and opposite reaction from men going to the extent of clamouring for male emancipation. Ever since science reared its head, shattering the religious theories of human origin, many concepts perpetrated by patriarchy were toppled. That includes the position of man and woman in the society also.
