When looking at gender with this percpective, (David buss Robert sapolsky Judith lorber ) Although biological determinism makes their arguments within the ring of truth, there are multiple accounts and instances where it is evident that socialization had a key role in gender. Alike many other sciences, sociology critiques biological determinism and essentialism. Sociology itself is understood as the study of social behaviour, behaviour in groups that includes the organizations, institutions, and development. Thus, sociologists conceptualize gender with a social constructionist perspective, aiming to understand and demonstrate how society relies on social interaction in order to develop. Social constructionism is defined as “ the theoretical orientation that sees the expression and organization of gender not as the outcome of biology, but as the result of historical and cultural change, [and] the socialization of individuals…” (Kimmel 111) Through the examination of past experiments, situations, and case studies it is evident that the implantation of culture and socialization is a key aspect in the development of the

This essay will focus on whether or not gender disparities exist in sentencing and if so, to what degree does this gender disparity exist as well as the reason behind its occurrence.

A common misconception many individuals have about gender disparities and sentencing, is to assume that women receive a favorable sentencing outcome in comparison to men, due to
Theoretical Background A variety of theoretical approaches to the study of language and gender have developed to account for gender differences in language use. However, interpretation of speech differences between men and women is associated with two main approaches: dominance approach and difference approach. The dominance approach is proposed by researchers such as Lakoff (1975), Spender (1980), and Zimmerman and West (1975). This approach claimed that gender differences in speech are the consequence of unequal distribution of power and status in society. The central focus of this model is male dominance and gender discrimination, viewing women as oppressed and minority group.
It is usually an extension of our “gender identity,” our innate sense of being male or female. Each of us expresses a particular gender every day – by the way we style our hair, select our clothing, or even the way we stand. Our appearance, speech, behaviour, movement, and other factors signal that we feel – and wish to be understood – as masculine or feminine, or as a man or a woman. The Gill Foundation writes that in most individuals, gender identity and gender expression are in accord but for some of us, our gender expression may not match our biological sex. That is, while other people see us as being male or female, we may or may not fit their expectations of masculinity or femininity because of the way we look, act, or dress.
