What is Gender?
The state of being male or female (typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones). In broader perspective, gender is a socially established norms and attitudes to define male and female’s role differently.
In another term, gender refers to socially structured identities, attributes and roles for men and women. And the social and structural meaning attached to biological difference between men and women result in hierarchical relationships between men and women and in equal distribution of power and rights that favors men and disfavors women, (Research report, 2014, Strengthening Health System Responses to Gender-based Violence in Eastern Europe and Central Asia)
Although the terms sex and gender are often used interchangeably, they, in fact, have distinct meanings. Sex is a classification based on biological differences for example, differences between males and females rooted in their anatomy or physiology. By contrast, gender is a classification based on the social construction (and maintenance) of cultural distinctions between males and females. Gender refers to “a social construct regarding culture-bound conventions, roles, and behaviors for, as well as relations between and among, women and men, boys and girls (Krieger N, 2003).
