In certain countries like the U.S. masculine roles are usually thought to be closely associated with strength, dominance and aggression while feminine genders are usually associated with nurturing, passiveness and subordination. However it is a lot more complicated than that.

BODY BUILDING FOR WOMEN Introduction Women have always been considered to be weaker than the men. The reason why this is the case might be because women and men have different hormones. Men have a higher level of testosterone which is a hormone for building muscles, on the other hand, women usually have a higher level of estrogen that can lead to fat that is excess in women. This case hence can discourage women from involving themselves in weight training. Women may think that because they have high levels of estrogen it might be hard for them to build muscles.
The communication among neurons is quick and detailed and the other endocrine system is the slower but it is more widespread and the endocrine systems communication with the body and the behavior has long lasting effects. The biological approach also approaches the gender effects as a cause for human behavior. Psychologist Doreen Kimura and Elizabeth Hampton (1994) report is evidence where biological approach has explain human behavior with the of the gender factor. The experiments done by the above psychologists sated that the performance of women and men are different to levels of hormones, they have in their body.

Piaget believed that mental structures are initiated shortly after birth therefore, children are also able develop mental blocks. However, mental blocks are strengthened when individual actively participate with the available resources of the environment, through practice, experiment and serendipity (Galotti, 2008). In addition, to constructing mental blocks, Piaget viewed adaptation as a source responsible for shaping mental structures. Adaptation is further broken down into two principles called assimilation and accommodation. Piaget used these principles to explain the process of developing concepts and

Females score significantly more than males on the Emotional Quotient (EQ) (Baron-Cohen &Wheelright, 2004) and the Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI) (Davis, 1980). Socialization and culture play an important role in the development of empathy according to Baron-Cohen and Wheelwright, (2004) Eisenberg and Lennon (1983) proposed that biases in self-report scales could influence the observed gender differences. These differences may be because men may be unwilling to report empathic encounters due to social anticipations. When a tool is thought to measure s empathy, it may induce responses affected by an individual’s classificationto gender stereotypes (Michalska, Kinzler, &Decety., 2013). One of the most common stereotypes in society is that females are more considerate and empathetic than males (Rueckert, 2011).
