Social Constructionism A Panoramic View Social constructionism is a perspective on reality, a way of looking at ourselves and at the world. Simply put, reality is seen as constructed through discursive interaction. This perspective is situated in counter-position to the traditional ‘picture theory of language’ or ‘mirror’ metaphor, whereby the mind is presumed to reflect the world as it is (Gergen, 1999; Potter, 1996). For the constructionist, the world is not simply something that is found ‘out there’, but is what we make of it through language.

We perform gender identity by the repetition of acts that are associated with cultural norms of ‘masculinity’ and ‘femininity’. Gender construction, or ‘doing gender’, varies broadly according to the social contexts in which women and men find themselves. Hence, people perform gender differently, availing themselves of different strategies, depending on whether they are with people of the same or different sex, in a formal or informal situation, in a public or private setting and on the nature of the social relationships they have with the other persons involved, among other possibilities (Cameron, 1999).
