Gender Stereotypes

Gender stereotypes refer to the psychological traits and behaviors that are believed to occur with differential frequency in the two gender groups (e.g., men are more "aggressive," women are more "emotional"). Stereotypes are often used as support for traditional sex roles (e.g., women are nurses, men are construction workers) and may serve as socialization models for children. The research that will be reviewed here concerns sex roles and stereotypes with the emphasis on cross-cultural research. Methodological issues concerning measurement as well as theoretical views of how stereotypes develop will be briefly reviewed.
