The purpose with this essay is to study police students perception of men’s and women’s role taking and behavior in a group. The question that is presented is if a group’s efficiency can depend on which gender the members of the group have. There are many theories about the concept male and female and the meaning of these words. The gender roles that exists in the society sometimes reflects a point of view that observes men and women more conservative, were the woman is weak, gives birth to children and takes care of the family and the man provides for it and sees to that the members of the family have roof over their heads. The question is if it is that simple for humans to be shaped into gender either biologically or by society and does not possess individual qualities. The police students perception of men’s and women’s role taking and behavior in a group is connected to one gender role- theory that emphasize four point of views considering male and female behaviour and role taking. The result shows different ways of looking at the concept of gender and gender roles. There are many different theories about how gender is created by society or a quality that exist in men and women when they are born.
