Gender Sensitization is the process in which the people of all genders are taught to respect everyone irrespective of gender while acknowledging the differences. Gender is a range of characteristics used to distinguish between males and females, particularly in the cases of men and women, the masculine and feminine attributes assigned to them. Depending on the context, the discriminating characteristics vary from sex to social role or gender identity. Sexologist John Money introduced the terminological distinction between biological sex and gender as a role in 1955. Before that, ‘gender’ word was used as grammatical category. Cyberbullying is the harassment or bullying executed through digital devices like computers, laptop, smartphones and tablets. The platforms where cyber bullying can occur include social media, chat rooms and gaming platforms; where people can view and participate in the sharing of content. Cyber bullying comprises posting, sending or sharing negative, nasty or false information about another individual for causing humiliation and character assassination.
