Gender discrimination against women within the matriarchy and patriarchy plays a pivotal role in the protagonist's life in the select novel. This paper examines the protagonist's journey as seen in Easterine Kire's A Terrible Matriarchy, and also aims to expose patriarchy for what it is. Kire gives a critical insight into how girls are raised and groomed to be submissive wives. Women's subordination in tribal communities is one of the key themes explored in this novel. As the Angami society is a dominant patriarchal society, this work shows how unfair the matriarchy is to women. This paper focuses on how a matriarch becomes an ardent defender of patriarchy
