Abstract:
Globalization is one of the most important issues of the modern world and one that greatly affects third world nations. Developments in science, specifically in Information Technology (IT) have transcended the boundary exposing the real faces of modernization, development and globalization in the third world. This paper will examine the developmental activities undertaken by the so-called proponents of globalization and their effects on the segregation of society specifically with regards to women. We will explain several social cases and their effect on women. The points under our consideration are; 1. Social values and our prevailing globalized values: Under our social values, women are neither neglected nor pressured to perform more than our society needs. Our women are respected by our people for strong stand points in religion. However, the spread of western culture, specifically western satellite culture, has degraded our societal values. Our young generation has new perceptions of our social values and the wonderful roles of women under it. 2. Contradiction of values and stand point of women: The very contradiction of values and stand point of women are due to the dualist perception of our political and female leaders and the ignorance of our women. We will examine our prevailing perception and will show its realities. 3. Industrialized societies and the social contradiction: Actually industrialization has thrown us towards vague financial supremacy of women in society. Moreover, it has thrown women under more pressure, which our women are not at all accustomed to. Over-industrialization has turned the society toward a more disorganized family system which has long term effects on family, society and children. 4. The realities and the advertisement of globalization: The realities are far different than that of our advertisement of globalization which is misunderstood by our women. Even more, the ongoing social tensions within the society solely for making the society globalized, the women of the society are the victims. 5. Challenge and the action plan for women: Actually our people are always liberal towards women. So the first and foremost challenge for us is to make our society and family stable. After that we have to take necessary actions to meet new challenges that concern our society.
