HSERV 200 - Racial and Social Justice Resources for Faculty: Gender

The guide is to provide supplementary teaching materials for faculty teaching Ethnic and Cultural Diversity (HSERV200) as well as for faculty who are in other disciplines and want to incorporate racial and social justice issues into their curricula

Gender

Sex is a biological trait that is determined by the specific sex chromosomes inherited from one’s parents...

Gender, on the other hand, is socially, culturally and personally defined. It includes how individuals see themselves (gender identity), how others perceive them and expect them to behave (gender norms), and the interactions (gender relations) that they have with others.
