Spanish possessive determiners agree with the gender and number of the noun they modify. In other words, they change based on the whether the thing that is possessed is plural or singular, and whether it is masculine or feminine. Possessive determiners do not change based on the gender of the possessor, only based on the thing that is possessed.
