Role of Gender and its Impact on Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Art
The term “Gender,”


with its modern definition, initially spread among Feminist movements since the 1980s. It has been subsequently circulated in several international forums, including the Population and Development Conference held in Cairo in 1994.

 (WHO) defines gender roles as “socially constructed roles, behaviors, activities and attributes that a given society considers appropriate for men and women.”

In terms of visual expression, it is associated throughout history with the knowledge that form through the continuous dialogue between man and the nature in which he lives and experience phenomena that have either positive or negative impact on man’s life. This dialogue, with the constant human desire to reveal hidden causes that lie beyond the apparent phenomenon, produced a steadily-developing knowledge of man himself and his quo within his environment. One of the paths of this form of knowledge is the issue of sexual differentiation and the associated human activities that are essential to the reproduction of life itself. There are also further associated activities and motivations that have existed throughout subsequent ages of the intellectual history, which develop values ​​and rules that are made by man to preserve and control human societies.

One of the most important aspects of Gender issues is the relationship between men and women and the role of each in life and the extent of the common and different between the two sexes. This raised important questions throughout history related to gender. Based on answers to those questions is great political, economic and of course social developments.
