Stereotypes dealing with gender like the one promoted by David Brooks and studied by other authors are created through the influence popular media has on society in order to manipulate people to think a certain way and create conflict. David Brooks’ assertion that women are better students than men is not only incorrect , but also exceedingly dangerous. Of course, any statement that attaches an offensive stereotype to half of the human population and is reinforced by the pervasive influence of the popular media can 't be a good thing. To back this claim, the author provides evidence such as, "[Girls] are less likely to be diagnosed with a learning disability" or "Kindergarten teachers rebport that girls are more attentive than boys and are more persistent at tasks". To be less likely to have a genetic disorder doesn 't turn you into a better student, nor does your personal

Everything appears to be much more straightforward and equal, but it is nowhere near the truth. This “Utopian” society seems to still struggle with gender equality. Huxley demonstrates several instances throughout the novel in which women are portrayed as sexual objects, and even deemed as the bad ones. Brave New World begins with a class of students who are being toured around by the director of the facility. Much like that classroom and most top positions it appears that women are not as valued as men.

Brandon’s friends then bribe Olive with gift cards so that she will say she has had sex with them too.
I have always wondered why women are less studied than men, it is because perhaps their problems and concerns have been considered less essential than men or it is because they are seen as having psychological problems or deficiencies. The above has been a concern and interest of many psychologists, infect they have realized that psychological knowledge about women was androcentric (Crawford & Unger, 1992). However in light of the fact that a lot of psychology 's knowledge about women has truly been androcentric, women 's activist methodologies came into give oppositional information (Marecek, 1990) .It has been found by numerous psychologist that women are dealt with sub-par than man on account of their sexual orientation.

Socio-linguist Deborah Tannen demonstrates how men and women communicate differently in her essay “Sex, Lies and Conversation: Why Is It So Hard for Men and Women to Talk to Each Other?” In her observations of communication styles, she discusses the way in which men and women communicate leads them to conflict because they have different understanding of their partners’ role. She also explains male and female communication differences not only cause ineffective conversation, but also push couples into a dilemma in their relationship; however, as men and women better understand the differences, their relationship improves. In the first part of her essay, Tannen discusses men and women do not have enough effective communication, which damages their marriage. Tannen illustrates a small talk that gathers men and women. During chatting, one woman is quiet, but her husband is talkative.
