This article examines the influence of social institutions on the socialization of gender. Gender socialization forms the gender division that exists in society. A person who is socialized based on his gender is highly likely to reproduce gender stereotypes later. The most important impact on socialization is influenced by the family, society, and the media. The family is a unique social institution, an intermediary between the individual and the state, a translator of fundamental values from generation to generation. School is an effective institution in the formation of a person’s personality. The media is an institution of mass communication that operates according to certain rules. In this regard, gender socialization is hierarchically affected in the family – society – education – media – self-awareness – self-realization complex.

Keywords: gender, gender socialization, social institutions, family, school, mass media, man, woman.
