We aim to discuss all gender issues, not just women issues. Society views of gender affects us from birth. It is the biggest divide between people. We welcome issues relating to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

Gender refers to the socially constructed roles, behavior, activities and attributes that a particular society considers appropriate for men and women.
The distinct roles and behaviour may give rise to gender inequalities, i.e. differences between men and women that systematically favour one group. In turn, such inequalities can lead to inequities between men and women in both health status and access to health care.
This group may end up having an emphasis on issues of inequality, since these are huge issues, human rights issues; they concern everybody. I also encourage discussions on every aspect of gender: science in general, sociology, psychology, education, rights, etc. are all important topics. I will add pages to the group with websites of interest. Suggestions are most welcome!
