It is also found in much of the discussion of sexual harassment and gender violence. Compared with “sex role” theory, this approach more readily addresses issues of power. However, categorical theory too has difficulty grasping any of the complexities of gender, such as gendered violence within either of the two main categories, men and women. The categorical approach leaves little space for the interplay of gender with class and race, and misses such issues as the importance of unionism for working-class women, or community organizing for indigenous women. It readily leads to ethnocentric generalizations about women and men, which miss the importance of the global structures of exploitation and
Gender roles are constructed by society and attributed to women or men. In the book of vindication of the right of a woman, Wollstonecraft brings out clearly the roles of a woman in her society and how it has led to oppression of women (Wollstonecraft 22).

Sue is not similar to Hardy’s other heroines. Her view on marriage also differs from other heroines because she acknowledges the fact that she 's a member of an oppressed sex rightly seeking autonomy. Despite Sue’s final return to her husband, her marriage with Phillotson and her experience with him are adequate to prove her as a new woman. She expresses her view about marriage by saying that “What tortures me so much is the necessity of being responsive to this man whenever he wishes." (Jude the Obscure P. 211) Sue criticises marriage and believes that the institution of marriage brings limitation to the freedom of the couple and bounds them into it.
Attention is brought to the fact that the natural given body can 'put on ' different genders as it is socially constructed. However, it is regularly assumed that the sexed body must generate a certain gender identity that is the performance of gender is assigned to reflect the biological sex and is restricted by it. It seems then that if the ‘inner truth ' of gender is fabricated and gender is only inscribed on the surface of bodies that it can only be produced as the effects of a stable identity. Butler places some focus on how persons 'act ' in ways that draw attention to the construction of heterosexual identities that presents individuals as essential ' and natural '. She goes on to suggest that gender is a form of parody and some genders are more parodic than others; in highlighting the disjunction between the body of the performer and gender being performed she reveals the imitative structure of all gender.Forced heterosexuality is an important concept in Butler’s work where the ‘natural division of men and women is based on the regulation of sexuality within the boundaries of heterosexuality.

A masculinist might ponder the thoughts that females deserve neglectful behaviour, lacking the comprehension of equality.
When Sarah’s suitcases are destroyed in a brawl, she becomes passive, while the men are cheering. Furthermore, the clothes Sarah is wearing are decorative and clean, which is a stereotypic belief of women’s attention to appearance as opposed to the men’s functional clothing, though this could be explained by the cultural differences exposed in the film. Over the course of the film, Sarah changes from a challenge-seeking aristocrat into a mother figure to Nullah. The generalization that women are better caretakers of children than men is presented by Drover after Nullah’s mother has died: “He needs motherin’ … and you're a woman, so, go on, get down there.“ Sarah Ashley states she is not good with children but follows Drover’s judgement, maintaining the gender order
