Zimbardo explains the significance of sex categorization as early as the first 24 hours after birth. Gender is learned rather than innate.
Zimbardo characterizes feminine and masculine gender roles. Bem argues that a blend of femininity and masculinity results in greater behavioral adaptiveness.
Zimbardo examines the physical health differences in men and women. Some sex differences are learned over time and influenced by learned gender roles.
Zimbardo analyzes how gender differences are learned in social contexts. Block examines the different treatment of boys and girls.
Zimbardo discusses the positive and negative consequences of learned sex differences. Children are actively involved in shaping their own understanding of gender.
Zimbardo suggests that women and men are more similar than they are different in almost all their psychological traits and abilities. Gender is an important way to socially categorize people.
