Abstract

The term gender is contradicted with the term 'sex'. Though both the terms used as synonymous in normal context, there is a technical difference between them. The word 'Gender' cannot be used to refer biological difference between male and female where on the other side of the coin 'sex' refers to biological characteristics by which human beings are classified as male & female. Gender, in general, refers to socio-cultural and psychological behaviour categorized by human beings as “Masculine and Feminine". It’s a socio cultural construction. Judith Butler holds that there is no original or print who says "O body swayed to music, O brightening glance How can you know the dancer from the dance?" (70)

            Gender studies are the scientific study of patriarchal culture. It is the branch of social sciences that studies the relationship between men and women in the gender system of patriarchy. Mahesh Dattani plays address the gender issues such as Gender culture, Gender status and Gender bias.
