Keywords: Travancore, women,society,family,music,literature
AbstractThe status of women in a society is an important criterion in determining the status of the society. It is generally believed that women in ancient India enjoyed equal status with men. But various invasions pushed Indian women's lives to the sides of mainstream. The Travancore Kingdome was one of the southernmost princely states in British India which was remarkable by political, socio-cultural reasons. Following the matrilineal system of succession, women's lives in Travancore were relatively independent and active. The purpose of this article is to understand the contribution of the women writers in the cultural arena of Travancore.
