The categorisations as male/female and their gendered role expectations are socially constructed. Since many years, feminist anthropologists have laid much emphasis on this power difference as well as understanding how the varied prevailing practices/norms/patterns challenge, recreate or widen the gendered structuring in societies. In this paper emphasis lies in glimpsing the women pedagogy in-relation to other forms of hierarchies, while at the same time on how both genders responds and contest differences within them. The constructive binaries of 'us' versus ?them? will also be taken account into. Perhaps sole attention lies on knowing what is the position of women in today's time? Or what it feels like to be a woman at the onset of all-masculine hegemony?
