Effects of gender socialization

  • 1. Lobban (1974) found evidence of gender stereotyping in children’s books with women occupying traditional roles. Best (1993) found little had changed in almost 20 years
  • 2. Kelly (1987) – gender stereotyping in science classrooms as well as science text books where women are largely invisible
  • 3. Gender socialisation has the effect of cultivating gender differences in subject choice
