Gender is a set of characteristics distinguishing between male and female or masculine and feminine, particularly in the cases of men and women. Depending on the context, the discriminating characteristics vary from sex to social role to gender identity, with a distinction drawn between biological sex and gender as a role.

“ I do not think, sir, you have any right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience. ”
“ Men know that women are an overmatch for them, and therefore they choose the weakest or the most ignorant. If they did not think so, they never could be afraid of women knowing as much as themselves. ”

[close] Discover and recommend more feminist reads here: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/96419.The_Feminist_Orchestra_Potential_Reading_List We're also on twitter: https://twitter.com/femorchestra #feministorchestra Sick of sexist comments from people online and being accused of banging my 'feminist drum' by intolerant people I have decided to start a Feminist Bookclub on Booktube. All engagement is welcome though, on youtube, on blogs and on goodreads. This is not 'my' bookclub, however, it belongs to all of us. I strongly believe feminism, which means equality of all sexes in society, not to be about the individual but about everyone and to be a group movement. Therefore, I want this bookclub to be a group. We read one book over the course of two months throughout the year. At the end of the first month there will be a pre-scheduled twitter chat on themes relating to that month's book, which will not require you to have finished the book. A video review will then be posted on Jean (bookishthoughts) or Lauren's (readsanddaydreams) channel on youtube. If you also film a youtube review/discussion or write a review/discussion of the book on your blog please share it with us all by posting it in the reviews thread. Please use #feministorchestra on twitter, instagram and elsewhere so we can all share our posts, thoughts, discussion and book reviews Gender equality is at the heart of this book club so please recognise this in your behaviour. We do not exist to convince anyone of this but to discuss the nuances and individual issues presented by the literature we read.
