In our society, women are found to be enslaved in a variety of ways even if they are born free. In society, they are continuously disregarded and viewed as inferior members of the human race. Women are not granted the same kind of freedom or security that men have. Throughout her life, woman has experienced a range of physical and mental disorders. She is seen by many as being delicate and frail. Males have consistently been able to rise and sustain a position of dominance in society since the beginning of time, pushing females into a submissive role. Thus, the stories written by Mahasweta Devi and Mulk Raj Anand highlight the unsaid realities of women’s suffering as well as their ability to endure and fight against oppression. The audience is also made aware of the “unspeakable” truth about the women through these stories. The aim of the present paper is, to understand the plight of women in society, their sufferings, their psyche, brutality or violence towards women etc.
