Lesson 7: Gender Inequality

Lesson 7: Gender Inequality

Gender inequality refers to unequal treatment or perceptions of individuals based on their gender. It arises from differences in socially constructed gender roles as well as biologically through chromosomes, brain structure, and hormonal differences. Gender inequality stems from distinctions, whether empirically grounded or socially constructed.
Men and women are not equal in some respects, and that is a good thing. In humans, biological sex is determined by five factors present at birth: the presence or absence of a Y chromosome, the type of gonads, the sex hormones, the internal reproductive anatomy (such as the uterus in females), and the external genitalia. People with various sex characteristics that do not allow them to be distinctly identified as male or female are intersex. People whose internal experience that differs from their biological sex are transgender or transsexual. Males on average weigh more and are taller than females.
