Gender equality is considering the empowerment of a person while it should not be confined only to empowering someone. The main purposes of this study are to identify how gender equality is socially represented by both male & female perspective and do male and female support each other to build gender equality in Bangladesh. To formulate this basic research design we followed the survey through questionnaire and secondary analysis. Structured, Close-ended, and 3 points Likert scale has been used in the questionnaire. Data were collected from a total of 60 respondents equally both male and female. Goggle form was used to collect data and MS Excel was used to analyze data. The findings of this study say, maximum people do not show gender inequality socially. That means the social representation of gender equality is exists in maximum respondents. Both the male and female also support each other to build gender equality socially. Most of the study considers on gender perspective either gender equality or gender inequality but we consider how people represent gender equality socially so this study extends the previous study and which will help the academicians, rechargers, policymakers for similar socio-cultural nature or other countries.
