Modernization has been built on a masculine discourse. In this context, modernity has been designed and built using a masculine-dominant approach.

While gender is seen as a natural category, gender roles are inextricably linked to a culture’s normative ideals of masculinity and femininity. Individuals participate in the social world by fulfilling their roles as men or women. The roles of male and female genders do not exist in society by default. Rather, they are built by society.
The dual-gender system has endured throughout humanity’s existence and will undoubtedly endure as humanity progresses into the future. It can be said that history generated the dual-sex system and thus made it possible to exist in social reality.
