Gender is a social construct. The social construction of gender is a notion in feminism and sociology about the operation of gender and gender differences in our societies. This outlook of gender and gender differences have been source of study and research of many writers of India and the world to highlight the irony that lies in our societies. Gender equality, right to work for equal wages, right to equal access to health and education, equal political rights, minimizing discriminations prevailing in culture specific issues within Indian patriarchal society; such as inheritance laws and practice of Sati etc. are some other perennial aspects of Indian feminism. The present paper will try to highlight the voice of those voiceless, who has been leading their life amidst huge challenges in the path of living their own life.
