Abstract

On analyzing the society we live in, we can say that transition from industrial tomodern and postmodern society up to now has led to a change of the roles well established byour society, namely women perform men’s tasks and they get jobs which seem specific tothem, and men start to develop furthermore this side of relationing which is basically specificto women. The household issues are solved by both life partners and within organizationalenvironment women have begun to occupy important executive positions. However, there arespecific stereotypes including at the level of these changes.Stereotype analysis draws our attention to interpretations which might devalueindividuals or create a negative context without allowing any possibility to exploit certainpotentials of individuals. However it is necessary to recognize the complementarity betweenthe two genders. Stereotypes are more and more underlined in the Romanian society as theykeep on perpetuating. The emergence of these stereotypes owes basically to changes occurredwithin society.This study seeks to show the way these transformations aim the individuals’ lifestyleand how these stereotypes coordinate our entire existence. There are opinions anddiscriminations within a society in relation to personalities of individuals which are part of acertain social category and we learn the most of them from the ones around us and dependingon them we guide ourselves when meeting people. Stereotypes are harmful in their meaningand they hurt us by prejudice and discrimination.
