They could not get their own identity in the patriarchal ideology. An identity of a woman plays an important role to emancipate her as a product of her social role, status, individuality and self in her life. It describes every aspect of her life. It relates to self-image, self-esteem, individuality and usually refers to the individuality of the women protagonists who submit themselves under the forced norms of the male-dominated society and their families. Therefore, women consider themselves as a slave of men. The social revolutions not only change the family structure and relationships but also the other social activities. The research work explores the major elements which are demeaning the female identity and these elements have become an obstacle in the emancipation of women.
