Gender Construction

Becoming a mother has been doing wonders for the depth of my appreciation for the degree and mechanisms of gender construction in the societies to which I belong. Aside from clothes, dolls, toys, decor, and the usual accoutrements of early human life in advanced capitalist societies, I want to explore how the Boy/Girl bifurcation operates in the minds of caregivers. What freedoms, powers, opportunities, and circumscriptions open, close, expand or restrict our choices?
