What is Gender and Sexuality

Gender refers to the widely shared set of expectations and norms linked to how women and men, and girls and boys, should behave. Unlike ‘sex’ which refers to the biological and physiological characteristics that define men and women, gender refers to the socially constructed roles, behaviours, activities, and attributes that are assigned to men and women in any given society.

 

These expectations are are not fixed but are continually being constructed and reinforced through social relationships and economic and political power dynamics.

 

Remember you don’t have to fit into any of these ‘labels’.
