Abstract

The paper titled, Role of Gender Essentialism in the world of children showcases how gender roles are planted in the minds of young minds. Gender Essentialism involves the stereotypical practices which were followed from ancient civilizations, without analyzing and discarding the toxic elements behind it. It involves the idea that certain ideas as of chastity, patience, virtue, gentleness are the feminine trends while anger, pride, ego, attitude are viewed from a male angle. This paper does try to bring out the gender politics which is seen in society as a social manipulation game transformed by the mainstream media.
