Ever society is subject to change. These social changes occur due to many reasons and factors, but we may note a number of social changes taking place in our society in the recent period, which is, mainly, due to the rapid technological advancement and progressions.

And in all of these social changes occurred, the emancipation of the women is the one of the biggest and the most significant social changes occurred in our society. Now, we see a phenomenal change in the entire social and cultural settings, as more women joining the men’s world with more zeal and passion. The participation of women into all socio-political, educational, economical, and development affairs is being increased at the fastest pace.

‘Women’s emancipation is an integral part of the political program of socialism’. (Lupri, 1983, 296) As a major part of an extensive social engineering process, women are being pushed strategically into the outside world by design be it a field like sports, politics, military services, or legislative assemblies etc.

Women are becoming independent economically, thus giving an alarming rise to family break-ups, single parent phenomenon, mentally disturbed kids and a social breakdown altogether. The whole human race is in danger, and today’s mothers utilize all available means to restrict the number of children and multiply their total income, as well as social evils to further degrees

Children are the real sufferers. Today’s women, still, want to be labelled as mother; its other matter that they don’t to play the role of a mother. Kissing a baby’s cheek once or twice a day can be easily performed by a puppy or programmed robot then why do children need these type of frequently disappearing mothers? Part-time mothers, most of the time, are rented to take care of little children by full-time working mothers. These working women, performing the role of mothers simultaneously, are too busy in their daily schedules and spend most of the time at work and mainly rely on babysitters and child-minders. Out of such time-bound restricted motherhood, the incoming generation is in absolute danger and jeopardy, but where are our social scientists and supporters of women’s rights? The rise of career-oriented selfish mothers is just start of a massive destruction. For their own rights, women yell and cry at the top of their voice. On the other hand, today’s women have become extreme violators of children’ rights, giving minimum rights to their children as proved by terribly decreasing breastfeeding trend among these women.

‘Understanding that women of any society make grand impacts on their family and surrounding community, women’s stories must be tracked as primary considerations of the development needs and changes of any society’. (Foster, 2011)

This social change is nothing, but social degradation. Now we can easily see an increased number of mothers doing some paid work outside their homes when their babies are still in their infancy stages being less than a year old. In 2009, according to a research report published in UK, seventy per cent of British mothers of nine-to-12-month-old babies were doing some sort of paid work outside their homes as compared to only 25 per cent in 1984-85. What value addition these women are offering in the present world, except bringing up a package of social evils with them when step out of their homes?

Being a hockey, cricket or squash player, these enlightened women are, also, playing with the nature. Recent achievements, though much little in nature, has attracted more fans from the opposite sex to endorse their permanent stay in the outside world. And by pushing these women in every walks of fields, we are creating a masculine woman with a pretty female physique, but behaving like a man from head to toe.

‘Many women remain dissatisfied with the results of women’s access to political life, usually on the grounds that formal equality with men has not netted women an equal share of wealth, power, and prestige’. (Fox-Genovese, 1998)

More women are joining the outside word day-by-day and more sexual crimes are being committed against these women. The nature of crimes against women remains the same, though the ratio of these crimes is increasing like a storm. It means more exposure of women in the outside is directly related with more crimes committed against women. The media world, on the other hand, is ruled by the women as they get more coverage then hairy masculine faces. Being a women, especially an attractive one, needs no more qualification and degrees. These women are heavily paid to show their faces on the screen and they spoil the total image of women in general.

The term ‘gender balance’, in its actual meaning, is ‘gender replacement’ which, in fact, refers to creating imbalance in the working environment by replacing men by women in the main workforce. More employment positions are being created for women, while highest ratio of unemployment among men is pushing them to commit suicide in the end.

Now, it has become a favourite and most chanted slogan to title women as superior and great creatures. As a result of such misconception, every next woman mistakenly considers herself a great creature without even knowing what she is, really, offering for the betterment of the society. Being a woman doesn’t mean that she is, really, a great creature than man. Greatness requires a disposition of human dignity, character, and sacrifice and, without showing these attributes, no man or woman can be ever titled as being a great one.

The wicked tactics, employed to promote representation of women in our society, are easily noticeable through mass media. The entire media portrays working women as a most sublime and supreme form of womanhood. Terms like ‘super mom’, ‘super woman’, and ‘girl power’ are now included in everyday jargons of daily life.

The clumsy women unable to represent their own homes now represent the country on a global level. Most of these women, in the same way, are totally incapable of managing an 80-yards house, but still dream for ruling the entire roost. Our women are doing whatever they can but not doing what they, really, should. They try to appear like a pure woman, but in order to seize rest of the world they have, successfully, transformed themselves as ditto social replica of man.

Heart-ravishing beauty of social butterflies, flying from one corner to another in many parties and get-togethers, further multiplies a never-ending respect for the womenfolk. They are looking for appreciation and admiration for everything these gentle souls physically possess and socially contribute.

One wonders how easily men are accepting this social change. Representing women in every section of society like sports etc. is a part of social castration process or, in simple words, an attempt to castrate the society. In form of a social change, we are, now, experiencing a well-designed feminization of our society, bringing more and more women in the mainstream world by using all frequently-repeated pretexts and engineered justifications. In fact, we are, speedily, heading towards a social and ethical anarchy.
