Not only does race determine how young people are treated in the criminal justice system, but masculinity also plays an important role in how they are able to desist as they pass through this system. Central characteristics of masculine identity are toughness, dominance, and the willingness to use violence. Masculinity does not always describe biological sex; it is a tool used by both sexes in an attempt to accomplish certain goals. Young women also use masculinity in an attempt to survive and resist criminalization. Next, the author’s main argument is that there are differing forms of masculinity that men use in an attempt to maintain their dignity and gain respect.
Research says that young girls are usually the targets for a sexual assault and rape because of their vulnerability, their active social lives and their sexual attractiveness to older people. It is proved that older men are the ones to conduct sexual assault on young women and young men also contribute towards it. Men perform such acts because they want to enforce a sense of sexual entitlement, create a punishment for the women or it becomes a source of entertainment for them. Another major problem that leads to rape and sexual assault is child marriage.
Universally, domestic violence is referred to abusive behavior that is used by the intimate partner to control or power over the other intimate power. This can be in the forms of psychological, sexual, economic or emotional threats or actions that will influence your partner (Kindschi,2013).Domestic violence studies provides that psychopathology, which happens when in violent environment in child development can make the argument of domestic violence progress of being a generational legacy (Kindschi,2013).I chose to write about the Feminist Theory to explain why people commit domestic violence. It believes that the root causes of domestic violence is the outcome of living in a society that condones aggressive behavior by men, while women
However, male children have to separate from their mothers and identify with their fathers in order to be socialised according to their masculinity. They develop strong ego boundaries and a capability for independent action, objectivity and rational thinking to suit the patriarchal culture. Women are a threat to their independence and male sexuality. Girls are then socialised according to what women are supposed to be seen as, and so they reproduce the same nature that reproduces a male dominance. It is these qualities that make them potentially good mothers, and keep them open to the emotional needs of men.
John Hagan as well as Hagan’s colleagues was of the opinion that a difference in parenting styles as well as the amount of control used to raise boys and girls will intimately result in the socio-cultural gender divergence (Hadjar, Baier, Boehnke & Hagan, 2007:35). According to Anon (2016:1), there is a large difference between males and females when investigating criminal behaviour, males predominantly commit more violent crimes and commit more crime in general. The power control theory presumes that males are given more freedom when being raised, thus they are more likely to take risks and become involved in deviant behaviour (Hadjar et al, 2007:34). In contrast, women experience a stricter upbringing, thus, women take less risks (Hadjar et al, 2007:34).

Gender Equity in Education Gender equity or equality in education means that males and females have equal opportunities in terms of economic, social, cultural, and political developments. If gender equity is exactly achieved this will contribute to future of girls and boys more than approaches men-centred, and girls will get benefits from public and domestic life as much as boys. One thing that Wollstonecraft thinks is horrible for society is the fear of change and innovation. She constantly mourns the fact that schools still teach children to memorize and nothing else. What can
When he acts recklessly, carelessly he got the power. It is quite annoying that being a man is related to toughness, machoism and any thing that is related to being violent. The question comes up: What if all the men does not want this? Do they really have to take the risk of being called as ‘sissy’? The question is impossible to answer it but for Jack, one can say that, yes, he wants to be like Tyler, one of his alter ego.

These two factors require identifying exactly whom children play with or who they interact with in their daily lives and how these peer interactions affect their behaviour and development. Over time, these same gender interactions become stronger, strengthening gender segregation and the promotion of gender-typed behaviours and interests. This gender segregation cycle makes it less likely that males and females interact and learn from each other; hence, creating gender stereotypic beliefs, attitudes, and biases about and towards the other sex. According to Brown (1982), one-third of the two genders identified peer pressure as one of the hardest things they had to
