Summary/Abstract: This paper reflects upon the task of women in the context of the development of human rights. Human rights are depicted as something that is recognized personally. Since women have felt injustice for centuries, they constantly sought to solve this ethical problem by referring to the biblical, anthropological, philosophical, historical, and legal context. Even in our times the inequality is still evident in the field of human rights; however, not so de iure as in practice. Equality and human rights are for all. Inequality is embarrassing. Contemporary phase in the development of human rights, which includes massive gender ideology, rights of LGBT people, and practices of juvenile justice, becomes dangerous not only for women and men, but for children and families as well. Wide-spread construction of gender theories comes shoulder to shoulder with an ambivalent effect, which includes dismemberment of society, loosing personal identity, disintegration of families, incomprehension of the institute of marriage and thus leads to the dominance of minorities. European society looses rationality, which is substituted by manipulation.
