His dramatic art exposes an in-depth exploration of familial, social, cultural, economic, and psychological conflicts faced by women in everyday life. Ibsen has earned popularity and fame among audience, critics, reviewers, and scholars around the globe through shedding a new light on his women. The article, entitled “Ibsen’s Treatment of Women,” focuses on Ibsen’s plays in the light of his attitude towards female subjugation, marginalization, subordination, psychological trauma, dilemma, rights, and the suffrage of women, and oppression of the 19th century Scandinavian bourgeois society.
