Sex:The Biological Dimension

Whereas the word gender is often used to refer to the distinctive qualities of men and women (masculinity and femininity) that are culturally created. sex refers to the biological and anatomical differences between females and males. At the core of these differences is the chromosomal information transmitted at the moment a child is conceived. TIle mother contributes an X chromosome and the father either an X (which produces a female embryo) or a Y chromosome (which produces a male embryo). they include development of enlarged genitals, a deeper voice, greater height, a more muscular build, and more bod)’ and facial hair
