Gender has been defined as a complex multidimensional, multilevel, and dynamic structure of social relations that establish a specific gender order in a given society. Gender inequality involves gender norms and values which give rise to differences in the distribution of (material and nonmaterial) resources between women and men at both the micro-level action (everyday life) and macro-level institutions and practices. Institutions and organizations play a key role in the construction of gender and in the reinforcement of gender inequality, affecting choices and opportunities by unequally allocating resources and privilege.

Abstract

Gender has been defined as a complex multidimensional, multilevel, and dynamic structure of social relations that establish a specific gender order in a given society. Gender inequality involves gender norms and values which give rise to differences in the distribution of (material and nonmaterial) resources between women and men at both the micro-level action (everyday life) and macro-level institutions and practices. Institutions and organizations play a key role in the construction of gender and in the reinforcement of gender inequality, affecting choices and opportunities by unequally allocating resources and privilege.
