DEFINITION OF GENDER
The Australian Human Rights Commission definition of gender has been adopted throughout the Plan. The term ‘gender’ refers to the way in which a person identifies or expresses their masculine or feminine characteristics. Gender is generally understood as a social and cultural construction. A person’s gender identity or gender expression is not always exclusively male or female and may or may not correspond to their sex.
