Question Description

This past week we have been focusing on gender. Gender is a fundamental social division. All around us we see differences between men and women (and girls and boys). The way they dress. The activities they engage in. What they say. What they want out of life. We see gender differences in the college classroom -- who tends to major in what subjects? We see gender differences at the workplace -- who tends to hold positions of power and authority? We see gender differences in the home -- who tends to do the majority of housework? These social arrangements, which create and sustain gender differences, end up having powerful effects on the lifestyles and life chances of individuals.

Are we ever not doing gender? From the moment we wake up until we go to bed, it seems like we are constantly doing gender. For this essay, I want you to walk me through a small segment of your day (when you wake up, when you walk to class, when you eat lunch, when you shop, when you drive or ride the bus, when you go out on a date, when you attend religious ceremonies, when you watch movies with friends, etc). Do not describe your whole day, but rather, choose some small segment (a strip) of your life to describe. During that small segment of your day, in what ways are you doing gender? How are you displaying your gendered identity? Given the situation you find yourself in, how are you conforming -- or not -- to gendered expectations of behavior? As you write up your response, please reference and integrate into your essay the reading by West and Zimmerman "Doing Gender" and/or Judith Lorber's "Night to His Day"

Your finished essays must be 500-600 words in total.

Running head: DOING GENDER


Doing Gender


Doing Gender

Yes we are doing gender and this is manifested in a number of ways. Gender is
manifested in various spheres of life such as different roles performed by men and women, the
manner in which they engage in politics, social life, and dress code and talking among other
items (West & Zimmerman, 1987). There has been an argument that women tend to have good
memory as compared to men. It is also in public domain that men tend to take fact based
approach within their environment but women are inclined to initiative based approach due to the
fact they tend to perceive people with a lot of deep sense enhanced by their strong memory
(Lorber, 1994).
