    Abstract :
    Gender decides the place of people all over the world. This is true, particularly to women. If they are not only women but also colored, it has become very difficult to live in this universe. The enforcement of the values and norms of the dominant white culture has made impossible for the black women to hold on to a distinctive way of life. Afro-American woman history is a record of the struggle for the right to exist and recognition of their place in this society. This struggle is long and hard and taken on various forms. This paper attempts to present the violence against women and their fight against violence in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple.
