Common understanding of what gender is has evolved through the combined efforts of feminism, trans rights advocacy, neuroscience, psychology, sociology, and plenty more individual contributions.
Sex is not limited to a gender binary in humans. People have intersex bodies of many kinds, and the variability of genetic expression makes sex a multi-dimensional spectrum rather than a binary.
Gender is distinct from physiological sex.
Sex, the word, can mean many things, but in conversations about gender "phenotypic sex" is usually what people are talking about. That is the manifestation of a person's genetic and epigenetic factors as relate to the chromosomes that determine reproductive organs. These chromosomes are called sex chromosomes, but the truth of these chromosomes is far more complicated.
Gender is a social reality. Despite the prevalent ideology that there each of the two most common sexes, male and female, correspond to the only two genders, a person's gender doesn't necessarily their sex assigned at birth.
Exceptions to the male/female dichotomy for gender and sex are traditionally accepted in a number of cultures around the world.
People are happier and live more fulfilling lives when they are allowed to embody and express their gender in any way they want.
Planned Parenthood has a good guide on gender.
