Summary

Noted for its accessibility, this text--now revised and updated to reflect a decade of advances in the field--examines how attitudes and beliefs about gender profoundly shape all aspects of daily life. From the schoolyard to the workplace to dating, sex, and marriage, men and women alike are pressured to conform to gender roles that limit their choices and impede equality. The text uses real-world examples to explore such compelling questions as where masculine and feminine stereotypes come from, the often hidden ways in which male dominance is maintained, and how challenging conventional romantic ideals can strengthen heterosexual relationships.

Author Biography

Laurie A. Rudman, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Her research interests are intergroup relations and implicit social cognition. The author of more than 60 professional publications and several books, she is the past editor of Journal of Experimental Social Psychology and senior associate editor of Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Her honors and awards include the National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health and the Gordon Allport Prize from the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (twice received). Dr. Rudman is an honorary Fellow of the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science, and the Society of Experimental Social Psychology, for which she has served on the Executive Committee. She has also served on the Advisory Council for the National Science Foundation and as a representative on the board of the Federation of Behavioral, Psychological, and Cognitive Sciences.
 
Peter Glick, PhD is the Henry Merritt Wriston Professor at Lawrence University. His work with Susan Fiske on ambivalent sexism, including their award-winning article presenting the theory and measures of hostile and benevolent sexism, transformed the field’s understanding of discrimination against women. Since then, research has shown how benevolent sexism--affectionate yet patronizing attitudes toward women--leads to myriad behaviors that insidiously undermine women in the workplace and in heterosexual relationships. Dr. Glick’s work with Susan Fiske and Amy Cuddy on the stereotype content model established a highly cited general model of prejudice, distinguishing between its envious, contemptuous, and paternalistic forms. In addition to more than 80 articles, Dr. Glick has coedited or coauthored three books. As Visiting Professor of Management and Organizations at Northwestern University, he codesigned the Kellogg School of Management’s first course on diversity management.
