Gendered Object

Objects act as a materialisation of social relations.

Can objects be culturally inscribed with gender?

Can these gendered objects contribute to the maintenance of gendered social relations, especially relations of power?

Is there a way to change the gender of an object and in doing so change the way it affects society?
