Hyperfemininity is defined as strict or exaggerated commitment to a stereo-typically female or feminine gender role. Specifically, it relates to the feminine role in the context of heterosexual relationships.
A hyperfeminine woman may prescribe to the notion that her success or worth as a human being is determined by her ability to establish and maintain relationships with men. Pursuant to this, sexuality may be seen and used as a tool to maintain these relationships.
Hyperfeminity is often promoted by media as an ideal.
