What is Gender?

By Halima Omary

Gender is what we are: girls or boys. It is also seen in the traditional roles of males and females in society.

“Stereotyping is the manner in which society influences what we think of the opposite sex,” says Inshaaf Isaacs, a delegate at the MKK 2007.

Socialization forms stereotypes, and we grow up with these and pick them up from our parents and friends.

But in reality, there are very few things that differentiate guys from girls.
