Gender Studies is defined as “a field for interdisciplinary study which is devoted to gender identity and gendered representation”. The field also includes spheres such as, Women’s Studies, Men’s Studies and Queer Studies. This discipline, in specific, gives a wide approach and wide knowledge relevant to the fields of language, literature, media, society and anthropology. The term “gender” is rightly defined in the social and cultural context. Simon de Beauvoir defines, “it is a social and cultural construction of masculinities and feminities and not to the state of being male or female in its entirety”.
