Ibsen, one of the most famous playwrights of the nineteenth century, has created a masterpiece that highly reflects feminism. He, from the external point of view, is a feminist writer. The play is written by describing the marriage relationship in the family of humanism. It shows the face of the capitalist society, exposing its selfish and hypocritical nature and the "doll" of women in the family. Nora, in this case, is a family doll, a victim of a patriarchal society. She had become a doll under his husband’s hand and the hand of the masculine society. Based on Simone de Beauvoir’s feminism theory, the paper focuses on Ibsen’s personal experience in creating the play during that specific time which stimulated the growth of the women’s movement. To stress the importance of the paper, the paper does not only focus on the female image by the character Nora but also on how Hermer stimulates revolt from Nora in reflecting the society.
