By imbuing the ‘male’ body with feminine beauty and sensibilities, the “bishōnen can be read as a figure of resistance: both to the notion that biology is destiny and to the correlation between biology and gender role”. Through its problematizing of social concepts such as ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity’, as well as the gender binary itself, the foundations upon which the patriarchal society is built on are questioned. In addition, the androgyny of bishōnen characters also allow female readers to see them “not just as ideal lovers or partners, but in a sense as their ideal selves”. The BL manga thus, in its depiction of feminine boys, allow women to “picture [themselves] as separate from the sexist roles assigned to [them] by the family system” and indulge in the fantasy of loving a man “as an equal, free of predefined gender
One of the behaviors that she observed was that females both girls and women gave more direct and emotional attention during conversations. The study was female to female conversations versus male to male; for boys and men, while they claim that they were paying attention they did not have the emotional and physical connections of their female counterparts; the physical connection Deborah noticed was mainly eye contact. The second additional behavior was verbal acknowledgment; women gave verbal sounds so that the speaker could not only see their attentiveness but also hear it. Deborah Tannen research on “cross-cultural communications” focused on communications; she points out the importance of communication not just putting the blame on the man or the women. The result is that once the problem has been acknowledge and understood there is a chance for improvement.
Communication battles between the sexes is the issue addressed in “Sex, lies and Conversations: Why Is So Hard for Men and Women to Talk to Each Other?” by Deborah Tannen. The thesis of this essay is “how can women and men have such different impressions of communication in marriage” (404). Tannen’s main claim is women and men communicate differently and makes it harder to stand one another and that this behavior starts at an early age being children and being treated differently. She argues “the world desperately needs cross-cultural understanding” (408). Women blame men for not being in touch with their feelings and men blame women for not being assertive enough (407).
In addition to this, Gender (Male/Female) as also limitation were in the researcher focused only on selected male and female students. Explanatory Theories of Harassment Gender (male/female) based public harassment.

Further evidence comes from Gardner (1995), who found that some men/women seem to view harassment as playful. Additionally, gay men/women will sometimes harass to fit in, which may also 2 supports a male/female-bonding theory.
This book explores gender and gender stereotyping more overtly than any of the other books. An example of this is the relationship Esther Greenwood (the protagonist of the book) has with her ex-boyfriend Buddy Willard. Esther loses interest in him after finding out that he had lost his virginity, but still expected the women he marries to be a virgin. Esther saw the hypocrisy and the double standard – which is what girls should be taught to see. The book was written in the 1950’s but is still relevant today and questions the categorization of women into pure (the virgins) and not pure.

A few sociologists relate the full coordination of women into the cutting edge workforce with an increment in cases of sexual harassment. Social scientist are to a degree disparaging of normal ways to deal with managing sexual harassment - especially in the workforce. Numerous associations have made deliberate efforts to raise awareness and attention to issues related to sexual harassment, however social scientist suggest moving the center from distinguishing cases of sexual harassment to pinpointing elements that add to examples of sexual harassment with a definitive point of diminishing future events. Women 's activist lawyer Catherine MacKinnon contended for the legitimate acknowledgment of sexual harassment as sex discrimination in her 1979 book Sexual Harassment of Working Women. In the book, MacKinnon states that in view of the conventional sex parts of
Margaret Drabble enjoyed large female readership, which led Valerie Myer to remark that, “Drabble is the most contemporary of novelists: a whole generation of women readers identifies with her characters, who they feel represent their own problems” (13). The sexual revolution of the sixties, together with the emergence of the feminist movement, has led to the re-evaluation of gender relations. Patricia Waugh comments on the need to challenge the dominant concepts of gender and identity: If someone has always been defined as an ‘object’ in someone else’s gaze or discourse, then full identity will be conceived in the terms of adopting

He uses wordplay, imagery, and personification to make the poem interesting. “Jabberwocky” has a unique and very creative feel to it and I enjoyed reading it because of how imaginative it is. The poem has the same rhyme scheme as seen in many of Lewis Carroll’s poems, which is abab (Carroll, Lewis Poetry for). “Rules and Regulation” is another poem written by Lewis Carroll. This is a poem about a list of rules and laws that Carroll came up with that are amusing and not very difficult to follow.
