The prestigious psychologist and woman’s rights master Judith Butler clarifies that gender is a totally socially built term. This isn’t to be mistaken with sex, that is, male or female. Sex is organically; yet gender is a social develop (West and Zimmerman 1987). The general public gives gender characters, these are separated into male and female parts where certain conduct is viewed to be fit for the ‘female’ and certain conduct is developed suitable for a male (Carter). A familiar adage goes, men ought to be educated to apologize for their weaknesses and women for their strengths.
