Breathing in a patriarchy, watching men dominating the society, it will not be wrong if a woman desires to dominate the society. Men dominated society easily because of their population and somehow, their characteristics are the reason behind it. In my mind a question arose that if woman dominated society, what would it look like. To acquire my answer, I turned the yellow pages of history. The chronicles state that woman has not left any stone unrolled. She has played a dominant role in all fields of life.

The list of Nobel Laureates portrays that a woman moved heaven and earth and conquered in all fields.

She leads the nation like Hazrat Ayesha (R.A.) and ministers a state like Benazir Bhutto. She fights with fate like Muniba Mazari and saves the world like Betty Williams.

The saga of woman shows that if she is given a chance to dominate, then this flower will blossom with its full zeal and zest. She is able to achieve goals and can run the business of life, if given the chance, she can do way better than men.
