gender

German: Gender , English: gender
Topic:
English - Explanation:

Gender does not just refer to female or male gender; it also means taking account of the differences between and the diversity of individuals. No one is just "male" or "female". The way we coexist as members of society is in many ways determined by the gender roles we are assigned. That is why it is important to remain aware of gender differences but not, as Germany's Federal Constitutional Court has stated, to consider them rigid and non-negotiable. "Gender" should hence also be considered a category that can change over time.
