gender differentiation

gender differentiation

the process in which biological differences between males and females are assigned social significance and are used as a means of social classification. In most known cultures, anatomical sex is used as a basis for GENDER differentiation. In some cultures, the biological differences between sexes may be exaggerated and in others minimized. Thus, the biological differences between the sexes cannot be regarded as having inherent or universal meaning.
