The most surprising is probably not that the history of gender roles in the society is based on this biological difference, but that objects are an integral part of the gender division process. Design strongly affects our sexual identity and, through the object, spreads the idea of a gender specific role and status. But, if design is powerful to the point of shaping our identity, can it be a medium to (re)establish sex equality?
