    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}. – jub0bs 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?

    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
