Abstract
The concept of Feminism , Gender and Sexuality have become an important theme in literature. Feminism gained more importance in the twentieth century and ever since many writers have written about it. We can define feminism as , a movement striving for bringing out change in society, by making women equal to their masculine counter part in all the public and private spheres , be it social , economical or political. After feminism comes the studies of gender. Gender studies became an academic field of study in the 1960’s. It focuses on the ways genders are identified, sexually oriented and shaped. The latest study that emerged from the above is Gender Polarization. It is a concept which was first countered by Sandra Bem. According to Bem gender polarization is a principle which is very well organised upon which our society is built and has been running, holding this basic institution. The present paper aims at how the study of gender polarization is significant and how it has affected our society, especially women.
