This paper outlines the movement and ideas of Feminism in which a prominent and Nobel Prize winner Doris Lessing has treated the idea of feminism in her works. The paper is divided broadly into three parts, the introduction, the main body and the concluding part. The introduction highlighted the idea of Feminism and how women search for their equal rights in a society and also how they are treated in a male dominated society. The works of women writers focus on the sufferings of women in the family as well as in the society which leads to the realization of women to fight for their rights. The second part which is the main body focus on how Doris Lessing put her views against the idea of extreme feminists who only care for the rights of women status and not think of humanity as a whole which results in bringing about feelings of suppression in many women readers. The concluding part brings about the message from Doris Lessing which needs to be considered by her readers regarding the sex- war and social revolution.
