Abstract: The Present article aims at making an in-depth study of Women Characters in George Bernard Shaw’s Plays in various directions. Shaw, the rationalist has drawn his women in unsentimental and unromantic terms. Most of his women are unpleasant women. As a matter of fact the world of Bernard Shaw has a large place for women. He honoured women showing in his plays that they were not only to be loved, but respected. Shaw was an almost perfect example of the shy man with an inferiority complex. Shaw’s family situations and contemporary social conditions must have gone a long way in formulating his concept of woman. Shaw’s inferiority complex and androgynous nature must have had considerable impact on his ideas on women.
