Summary/Abstract: The masculine/feminine dichotomy is a basic symbolic division in the tradition of monotheistic societies. For millennia the world has been divided into these culturally- determined halves which are reflected in the models of thought and behaviour imposed by the dominant principle of authority. The established stereotypes of how a body acts mirror the official ideology which is made natural and legitimate by the biological differences.
