This course introduces students to the scientific literature on gender and the psychology of women as approached from the perspective of a social scientist. One emphasis is on gender stereotypes vs. sex differences in abilities, personality, and social behavior and the possible causes of such sex differences. The implications of gender roles for the behavior of women will be spelled out through detailed study of social behaviors such as achievement, aggression, and social power. Applied research on topics such as work, sexual harassment, and rape will be reviewed, as well as basic research. Women's close relationships will be considered, especially within traditional and nontraditional families. The format for the class is mixed and includes lecture, guest lectures, and movies/videotapes. Attendance in class is mandatory . Psychological Sciences 120 is a prerequisite for the course.
