Indian Poetry in English by women writers has been giving birth to several issues related to feminism. These poets are trying to express their long-suppressed voice through these issues. However, in most cases they are posting their fight against patriarchy. Patriarchy, as a male dominated social system, always seems hostile to the liberation of women by suppressing their identity. Modern women poets are successful in disturbing this traditional mindset. My paper will try to focus on another perspective of this issue where ‘father' is supposed to be the agent of patriarchal domination. I've tried to analyze some poems by Indian women poets in English who have incorporated ‘father' as a character in their poems in order to expose male domination. And it is not surprising to notice that several women poets are linked by the same issue as they are a part of same social system
