Gender is a system of social relations, learned ways of acting and how we visualise image representations, all learned through our culture intertwined to create our gender identity. Different countries worldwide have different teachings and ideologies upon gender, shaping the individual and creating gendered barriers, illustrating what is 'normal' and 'abnormal' within a particular society. Religion in particular is one of the main underlying foundations which a society's culture and gendered teachings are based upon, and throughout my source report I intend to uncover the history of gender and religion and the international issues and how religious beliefs shape thinkings in a plethora of different cultures through looking at different sources ranging from the media to academic evidence.
