gender role

the social expectations arising from conceptions surrounding GENDER and the behavioural expression of these, including forms of speech, mannerisms, demeanour, dress and gesture (see also GENDER IDENTITY). Masculine and feminine ideas are often deemed to be mutually exclusive, and in some societies the role behaviours may be polarized, e.g. the equation of passivity with the feminine role, and activity with the masculine role. Prescriptions concerning gender role behaviour are particularly apparent in the sexual division of labour in male and female work situations (see also DUAL LABOUR MARKET).
