The social construction of gender has enhanced people’s understanding of gender and its roles in detail. Various traits that are considered to be masculine or feminine differ remarkably from one culture to another. People are required to adapt to different gender roles so that they are able to exist in society well. As a result of the requirement by people to adapt to their gender roles, gender is, therefore, regarded as a social construction since it varies with cultural expectations of the society. Women and men are expected to accept particular roles as being their own since culture has stipulated so. Gender does not simply imply differences in sex between people, but being a social construction, gender is seen as a trait that people are expected to live with as a result of the cultural expectation. For example, females in society are expected by culture to be cooperative, neat, caring, compassionate and nurturing. This is because; females are expected to be the center-stage in a family setting by being a wife and a mother. Viewing women from this perspective enable people to appreciate that women are not suppressed in society, but it is a cultural requirement for them to take the aforementioned gender roles.In contrast, male children in society are automatically socialized towards assertiveness, competition, independence, and achievement. Social constructions of gender explain that men are expected to suppress their feelings and emotions so that they are not vulnerable to external pressures.
