Abstract

Women have been oppressed, subjugated and degraded in the history of the world .During the last century, they started to establish their rights and made attempts to end discrimination and injustice against them in the form of women’s movement called Feminism .Feminism is a multidisciplinary conceptual framework to combat challenges faced by women globally .It emerges from different geographical locations within their local socio cultural environment. In the Western social contexts, the feminist movement had an enormous impact on women’s struggle for their rights, over the last two centuries. In spite of the variations, the feminist movement has come a long way, since the publication of A Vindication of the Rights of Woman: with Structures on Political and Moral Subjects (1796) by the 18th-century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft. Feminist ideology is highly queried and contested. This movement had other social movement, and drew controversies too. However, at the same time, it has achieved significant success on the political, social, and legal fronts for women. Whether it was winning the place in universal suffrage or having the civil rights. Feminism as a socio-political movement has created quite a stir in the male-streamed world, especially in the western countries .It initiated with indigenous instruments in different societies and cultures .One such instance is Islamic feminism where Muslim women are reclaiming their rights through Islam and Quran and in its effect liberating Muslim women from patriarchy .This paper mainly discusses the evolution of feminism in different eras and cultures of the world.
