What is Gender?

“A social organizing force that encompasses the domains of the biological, intrapersonal, interpersonal and social and that determines a person’s access to and control of opportunities and resources. It is a system of difference and inequality that interacts with other systems such as race and class but is nonetheless distinct from it.”
