What does it mean to be a woman? What does it mean to be a man? As you might imagine, answers to these questions are complex, varied, and highly subjective. Gender stereotypes simplify the answers into prescribed categories of masculine and feminine. For example, there are traditional expectations that men be strong, with the role of protecting and providing for the family, whereas women should be delicate and emotional, with the role of nurturing the family.
The introduction to prescribed gender appearances and behaviors begins once a child is born, with the choice of a name and the presence of gendered clothing and toys. In the media, gender stereotypes play out in scenes where a woman is praised not for her strength or intellect but for her beauty and her body, or where a man swoops in to save a helpless woman in danger. The reality, of course, is that there is no one experience or one way to be.
