Tests: PSYC4321 - ABNORMAL PSYCHOLOGY - 32302 14 th -21 st Ch. 1, 2, 4 (Attatchment) PSYC3331 - PSYCHOLOGY OF GENDER - 32214 16 th (Sat) @ 9:30am Multiple Choices Denmark, Rabinowitz, and Sechzer’s new text Engendering Psychology: Bringing Women Into Focus increases the diversity of offerings for teachers of psychology of women and gender courses. Denmark et al. include a unique chapter on the origins of gender stereo- types in mythology and religion. The chapter discussion is inter- national in its focus on images of women and female roles in reli- gions around the world. In addition to integrating culture, eth- nicity, race, and class throughout (as do both of the other texts), Denmark, Rabinowitz, and Sechzer also include a separate chap- ter by June Chisholm on the topic. The chapter provides an excellent historical overview of the experiences of women of color in the United States. Denmark et al. also include some top- ics that are not addressed by the other texts (e.g., prostitution). Although Denmark et al. focus primarily on women’s issues, they do include topics exclusive to men and masculinity (e.g., male climacteric, fatherhood, redefining masculinity). Is inclusive in focus, discussing the lived experiences of women of color and lesbians. It is clear that the text authors have actively sought out and included material about diversity. Denmark et al. include somewhat more discussion of the lives of women inter- nationally and, along with Matlin, are more comprehensive in their discussions of disability. Activism is peripheral to Denmark et al. 1. Why do men and women have different life experiences?

The brains of men and women are measurably different, particularly the area called the limbic brain. The limbic brain is the part of the brain that feels emotion. It is also where we store highly charged emotional memories, tagging some memories as unimportant, and therefore they are easily forgotten. Because of these emotionally charged memories, the limbic brain then filters external events through internal states, creating what is called emotional coloring. This sets the emotional tone of the mind. 2. men yelling at women interrupting women not listening to women or taking women seriously making women repeat "no" men always speaking first and/or for the longest amount of time confusing closeness and sex men pursuing connection with only the young, attractive women in our community or placing a higher value on connections with them not fully supporting women on our path to empowerment because it feels threatening to men repeatedly hitting on women who are half the men's age always being the aggressor or initiator of sexual relationships 3.
