Gender Indexes are of great help in understanding the inequality in studied area. It will explore the topics of gender division of labor and its role in development in the context of power relations involved and different access to resources, masculinity and femininity, social construction of beauty and sexuality. We will discuss fertility issues and reproductive decisions as well as reproductive options, such as large families, intended childlessness, one parent families and technologies overcoming infertility since this area is related both to development and to gender. Issues of reproductive health as related to sex and gender are an inalienable part of our course. Hierarchical relations in the organization (both governmental and those in business), related to gender, will be our next topic. Finally, gender violence and sexual harassment are the last important issue of our course.
