Aim of this article is to discuss some aspects of the relationship between gender and reflexivity. The concept of reflexivity provides sociology with a means to understand the way that gender and social change intersect in contemporary modernity. The conditions of late/second/post-modernity create the opportunities as well as the need for social actors to shape their own identities. This seems particularly true among Millennials (women and men born after 1981) and Gen Zers (boys and girls born after the year 2000), two generations that have grown up immersed in multi-modal messages and global online cultures, often resulting in new forms of understanding, engagement, practices and relationships. Through a literature review, the article discusses if/how reflexivity can be a useful tool both to deconstruct the system of transmission of gender inequalities and to understand contemporary gender changes.
