Trig 'Emasculate' vs ?

Hello folks,

I am curious about something. I find language both fun and fascinating. One of the things that struck me as interesting:
in the English language we have the word 'emasculate' meaning to deprive a man of his male role or identity. Has anyone ever noticed that there is no equivalent for a female? There is no concept/word suggesting that a woman could be deprived of her female role or identity. Isn't that strange? Or maybe not? To me, it suggests that males have something special to be regarded and protected whereas females do not. Anyone care to share some thoughts?
