Gender/Sex Equality

Gender is not about a person’s biology but rather is to do with identity, which is often created by the society we live in.  Many people are considered to be male or female based on the basis of biological sex but not everyone’s gender is the same as their sex.  People who have a different gender to their sex are transgender.
