Feminism is a struggle for equality of women or an effort to make women equal to men. It is seen as the struggle against all forms of patriarchal and sexist aggression, such as oppositional definition presents, Feminism as the necessary resistance to the patriarchal power, logically then it is a theory of imagination. The universal idea of feminism believes that all men and women are equal and deserve equality in all opportunities, treatment, respect, economic rights, and social rights. Overall, feminists are the people who try to admit that there is a social inequality based on gender and want to stop it. Feminists comment that in most cultures through history men have received more opportunities than women. The purpose of this paper is to find a feminist aspect of Anita Nair’s novel “Ladies coupe”. The novelist explores that the women can live a happy life without a man. She can make a decision of her life. Ladies Coupe is a story of six women who are in search of autonomy and perseverance. As a woman novelist, Anita Nair depicts the problems of Indian women and probes into their psyche. The novel also deals with the transformation of the six women in the patriarchal society. The protagonist of the novel Akhila breaks out of the traditions of Indian society which chain her. Not only Akhila but also Prabha Devi, Janaki, Sheela, Margaret, and Marikolanthu emerge as independent personalities. The central character of ‘Ladies Coupe” has never been allowed to live her own life always the daughter, the sister, the aunt, the provider until the day she gets herself a one-way train ticket to the seaside town of Kanyakumari. In the train, she meets other five fellow travellers. In the interaction Akhila begins to seek answers to her questions those questions were haunting her all her life; can a woman stay single, and be happy or does she need a man to complete life.
