Bankim Chandra Chattopadhaya’s , Rajmohan’s Wife is the first Indian novel which is talked less. The article highlights on the feminist character who have established their identity before independence. Taken into consideration only Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay’s, Rajmohan’s Wife, we see how Matangini the female protagonist breaks the patriarchal system. “The novel deals with the rebellion of a beautiful and passionate woman against the oppression and dominance of her husband. In this novel the female protagonist goes against tradition through raising her voice against her cruel husband and loving the husband of her own sister” (152).
She over comes the barriers and goes against her husband. In all these she breaks away from the traditions and the system that prevailed and stands firm in creating and identity of her own.
