Keywords: gender | biological experiences | social interpretations | the patriarchy

The paper proposes an analysis of the content of gender stereotypes on the natural - social continuum. Starting with some lexical definitions we reveal the fact that inequalities beetwen men and women are prescribed in a cultural framework beyond any biological differences. Regarding gender as a social construction we elaborated a synoptic of biological differences between men and women that are rebuilt within a culturally discriminatory framework for women.
