At the University of Business and Technology – UBT, with the students of the department of Psychology SIT explored the complex and often misunderstood concepts of gender and sex. Through discussion, they delved into the societal perceptions that shape our ideas of what it means to be a man or a woman.
Beyond defining the differences between these two concepts, they also explored how misunderstandings and stereotypes can perpetuate the reinforcement of gender roles and gender inequality. From the limitations imposed on individuals to the broader impact on society, we examined the far-reaching effects of these misconceptions.
By acknowledging the fluid nature of gender and sex, and challenging the outdated and traditional beliefs that have long limited our understanding, we can work towards a more inclusive and equitable world.
