Gendered Evaluation

Gendered evaluation is contingent on the meanings given to the terms sex and gender: whether sex and gender are understood to be a fact of nature or socially constructed; whether to view the experiences of a particular gender as homogeneous or see that gender can be constructed and experienced differently based on the intersections of race, ethnicity, class, and sexual identity; and whether to accept the bifurcation of sex (female and male) and gender (masculine and feminine) or to explore the inclusion of more than two sexes (i.e., intersexed individuals) and two genders (i.e., transgendered individuals).
