This paper is part of a longer-term and in-depth research project on the social significance of experiences of gender among students from different cultural, historical and political backgrounds. The adopted research model, psycho-social approach to active-audience research, aims to investigate how a person’s sense of gender, which is an individual and yet a shared experience, creates meanings that determine how young people experience reality. Here I deal with the theoretical part of a larger project. The aim is upon discussing, firstly, the conceptual foundations of the psycho-social understanding of gender, secondly, the construction of gendered personal meaning, and, thirdly, the use of media content interpretations for the purpose of gender identity research.
