The flow of feminism touches each corner of the society in the twentieth century. Nora Helmer is the fiery representative of women against the patriarchal society in the drama ‘A Doll's House'. Blind love, worship, social attitude and economic crisis snatches life from the body of a female easily, and it is also true that these things forced them to play like a doll in family, religion and society from cradle to grave.The research is conducted through systematic sampling of various research articles and books for review on feminism, women empowerment and Ibsen's work, ‘A Doll's House'. Through the character Nora, Ibsen brought out the message that the inner spirit of women is their conscience which can help them to tear strong net of patriarchal society, to break the doll's house, to build new world of peace and pleasure where they are inclined to have their breathe, smile, satisfaction and true happiness against the red eyes of the society. Nora carried the slough of a doll in the family at the beginning but later she stood rigorously not like a doll but as a human being. Nora Helmer broke the strong chain of the hypocritical world and raised her luminous voice of feminism in an untraditional manner that is found to be revolutionary.
