This study focuses on the painful feelings, frustration and bitter experiences of the victimized women in the novel Sea of Poppies. It stresses on the protagonists’ efforts to resist the inhuman behaviour, rude manners and discourteous nature of males. Besides, the research tries to explore the prevalent mind set of patriarchy that considers female as an object not as a civilized human being. Women have been able to hold major status in different sectors and have proved their excellency. They have appropriated the transformation very easily. However women are still underestimated, sub ordinated by the traditional mindset of masculinity. It is this mindset of patriarchy which has worsen the image of the modern advance countries.



Animosity, Patriarchy, Valorizes, Legitimization, Impotence.
