Gender Development How are we alike? How are we different? Sex: Our biology status that helps define our gender Gender: Socially constructed roles and characteristics by which culture defines male and female Similarities of Genders -45/46 chromosomes same between 2 genders -Intelligence is relatively similar -Happiness -Self-esteem Differences: -Women experience puberty before men -Women typically live longer than men -Body type (less muscle and more fat) -Women more likely to develop depression -Men more prone to suicide, drink alcohol, and be colorblind Overall we are more similar than different! Sex/gender differences Males: More likely to engage in physical aggression Males: Tend to have higher social power, acting more assertive Males: Less socially connected Females: -More likely to engage in social aggression -Tend to have less social power than men, (nurturing and collaborative, more democratic) -Express more support -More interdependent These differences tend to peak in later adolescents Nature: Our biology -Prenatal sexual development (Father picks if you are male or female, he either gives you an X or a Y chromosome) -Adolescent sexual development develop sex organs and secondary sex structures -Variations on sexual development Gender role: Social expectation of what males and females "should do” Gender roles have changed over the years, depending on where you live/culture Gender Identity: A persons sense of being male or female Social learning theory: Gender schemas form very early in life Nurture: Our Culture -Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from their birth sex -Gender identity is not the same as sexual orientation (who you are attracted too) -

Why people love StudySoup

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles
