This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

what do you mean when you mention not working? Can you complete your example such that it becomes a full example with problematic symbol macros? (off-topic you don't need to include evvery package here for a specific question) –  percusse May 20 '13 at 14:02
I second percusse's comment: please discard everything that is not essential to explaining your question. People will understand much faster what you're getting at if you remove the clutter. The following works for me: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{marvosym} \begin{document} \Male \quad \Female \end{document}. –  Jubobs May 20 '13 at 14:02
That is working with \usepackage{wasysym} and \male and \female without capital letters –  Tidou May 20 '13 at 14:10

Detexify lets you draw the symbol then gives you a set of possible matches. From that site, maybe this would work for you?

Yes, that is working like that. Thank you –  Tidou May 20 '13 at 14:10
If you’re using wasysym, you should use \male instead of \mars. Even if their output is the same (which I don’t know), there’s no reason not to use the semantically logical \male next to \female. –  doncherry May 20 '13 at 22:32
