Abstract

Current social sciences differentiate the notion of “sex” as of the biological understanding versus “gender” that denotes the social and sociological phenomenon of the sex. Being one of the basic dimensions of the social structure of human society, in conjunction with several other cultural and socio-demographic data (race, age, ethnic belonging, social strata, etc.) it is essential foundation of nay social system whatsoever. Always based upon certain cultural background, this dimension in imbedded in every essential social institution of the society and determines social relationships between the men and the women there. [1]. Currently gender studies is one of the basic tools for the research of any given society. Both social and political sciences pay tribute to “Gender” and consider it as almost equal and important as the ”Class” is in terms of history – the main contributor to the stability of the society. For better understanding of social and political processes from gender standpoint there are special tools used for sociological modeling that can clarify the process of formation of social identity and its temporal modifications. Publications of Frances Woolley, Judith Lorber, Gisela Bock and other outstanding scholars give some insights on problematic issues emphasized in current gender studies.  [2].
