Abstract
The writer of every society is currently looking into a new way of expression than his
predecessor. With this discovery, there have been many great changes in the literary environment into new
dimensions, especially when Marxism is applied in literature as a background. Marxism is the key to the
development for writing outcome in present days. A new society has been made clear through practice for
people who are tired of the social system that is rooted in traditional society. In order to give solutions for
problems of women Fredrick Engle stretched Marxism to Marxist feminism. According to Marxist feminist
philosophy, one of the reasons for women's oppression is the lack of prospects for women to produce and
individual useable resources. Fredrick Engle mainly highlighted three major causes for women subjugated in his
Marxist feminism. They are patriarchy, economic dispossession and capitalism. I have chosen the impact of
patriarchy in Alice walker‟s three novels for this research paper they are “The Meridian”, “The Color Purple”
and “The Temple of My Familiar.”

Key words: patriarchy - suppression - Marxism - Marxist feminism - women
