Kayla Lloyd 2.22.16 Review Sheet 1: Material covered on the exam comes from lecture and/or textbook   Introduction Sex – biological   Gender – social constructed  Role – social constructed behavior patterns in society  Stereotype – generalized assumptions about a group of people  Ideal – perfect image or norm (what is how it’s supposed to be) Discrimination – the unjust or prejudicial treatment of people or things (ie. Race, age, or  sex)   Prejudice – an unfair feeling of dislike for a person or group based on race, sex, religion,  etc.. Glass ceiling: unseen barrier that tries keeps women and minorities moving up in life  Gender bias – false assumptions about a certain gender; unequal treatment and  expectations and attitudes based on the sex of a person or group of people  Intersectionality – the study of overlapping social identities and related systems of  oppression  Connection between difference and inequality: There is a system of differentiation  between men and women in U.S. society. But difference is not the same as inequality and sameness is not the same as equality. Difference makes it difficult to see inequality. (Ex.  Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke switch roles)    Women and sexual assault: about 50% of females will or have been raped  Prostitution: most have pimps  Normalizing: social constructed gender norms when they really aren’t true  Limited Roles: Feminist theorists do not argue that women or men who fill traditional  roles (including sexualized roles)  Taylor Swift: used her video to show feminism and breaking social constructs  Missy Elliott: used her to show how some women  are more alike than we like to think  Feminism: goal is to end sexism and have social equality for men and women  F1, F2….Fn Differences among women, compared to difference between men and women: whatever  the difference may be between males and females, there are sometimes greater  differences among themselves. A woman may in many ways be more like a man  Bias against women of science: women were incapable of being on the same caliber as a  man The gender pay gap­ statistics, reasons: Women need an additional degree to make as  much as men with a lower degree over the course of a lifetime.  A woman would need a  doctoral degree to earn the same as a man with a bachelor’s degree. A man with a high  school education would earn approximately the same as a woman with a bachelor’s  degree.  Percentage of men and women in paid labor force and trends: 61% of women and 70% of men work in the labor force  Black and Hispanic women and poverty rates – black and Hispanic women have the same amount of poverty in their communities as white women  Working women and husbands who do housework: it makes them fight more  Unearned privilege: an individual package of unearned assets  Sexism: discrimination or devaluation based on a person’s sex  Patriarchy/ Matrilinear: Patriarchy: male dominance over women and children in the  family and over women in society Matrilinear: tracing descent through the maternal line Androcentric/ Gynocentric: Androcentric is the characteristic of focusing on males and or male qualities. Gynocentric means to only focus on the female perspective; emphasis on  feminine interests or points of view  Forager (hunting and gathering)/ Horticultural/ Pastoral/ Agrarian: Forger – nomadic  lifestyle, very little inequality  Horticultural: first agricultural tools, development of patriarchy  Pastoral: men’s ownership if herds, male ownership of wives, women as sexual property  (eg. The Red Tent) Agrarian: the production of surplus, development of “civilization”, advanced farm tools  Differentiation /Stratification/ Gender Stratification Book: The Red Tent
