The teacher organizes the discussion, using the questions "how do you think, why ...", "what", "how". The task is to pay attention to the "double standard" regarding the expectations of the society regarding the behavior of men and women, the socially unlimited behavior of men and control over the behavior of women.
(Depending on the situation and the characteristics of the audience, you can introduce the concepts of segregation and discrimination by sex.) In the classroom, as a rule, there is necessarily a saying about "male privileges", explained by the fact that "the man is the getter".

It is pertinent to emphasize that all the information is taken from the social experience and observations of the participants of the lesson, that the presented ideas are sufficiently stable and therefore in a certain way affect people, force them to change their behavior in order to justify social expectations.
