experimental workshop on:
Male and Female Gender Stereotypes
By Andy Whittle
Gender roles are cultural and personal. They determine how males and
females should think, speak, dress, and interact within the context
of society. Learning plays a role in this process of shaping gender
roles. These gender schemas are deeply embedded cognitive frameworks regarding
what defines masculine and feminine.
For example; Women are caring and nurturing. Men are aggressive.
Men don't ask for directions. Women can't read maps. The list of stereotypes
goes on but a new study in America suggests that these differences
are illusions created by the media.
Author Janet S. Hyde, from the University of Wisconsin in Madison, says
traditional portrayals of men and women as psychologically different
are vastly overestimated and the two sexes are more similar in
cognitive ability and leadership than realized. Is this true?
Many people recognise the danger of stereotyping, yet continue to
make these kinds of generalisations.
Through open discussion and group exercises, you will explore gender
stereotyping, what it is, what it all means and how we all perpetuate
it on a daily basis.
By the end of this workshop, you can expect to have a better understanding
of how pervasive stereotyping is and what you can do about it
