This study as a review of related literature, aims to investigate the role of the gender on the pronunciation accuracy. We present a description of the pronunciation accuracy and the previous studies in this realm are reviewed and the effect of gender on it is noted. For nonnative speakers who intend to learn English language, the ability to speak fluently and to have pronunciation fluency is one of their necessities. It is interesting for researchers or others who participating in English language learning programs to know the differences between two genders in this field. The historical background of the researches in this realm shows no considerable difference between them except that producing accurate and clear consonants by females are more than males but it cannot confirm a complete superiority of females in pronunciation accuracy. So, according to these studies, there is no significant difference between learning in men and women and there is no need to design different programs for their language learning programs.
