Abstract

The community is an excellent potential arena in which to challenge gender perspective and change power structures in society because of its pivotal role in socializing gender and shaping social context. The community influences the availability of positive and negative role models, the accessibility of specific settings, the ease with which relationships are formed, and a variety of emotions and attitudes. The literature shows that paying attention to gender equity affects numerous indicators of community well-being. Attention to gender equity makes communities more competent, which creates human and social capital that enables community well-being. We will examine the role of gender not only as a social construction but also as a context to create a healthy setting in the community and to promote the health and wellness of gender perspectives in the scientific domain, which seems resistant to change
