Gardner (1995) reported that many men/women use a romanticized rhetoric in response to harassment. From this perspective, women may view harassment as flattery, as due to the nature of men (i.e., “Boys will be boys”), or as harmless. However, women who were harassed by someone they knew for more likely to experience negative effects in only one of those contexts. In work or schools, colleges, universities settings, a men or woman may know his/her harasser, but public harassment is defined as occurring between strangers. Additionally, men/women at work or schools, colleges, universities may be able to more directly respond to harassment than they can on the street, such as by turning to employment policies.
Gender stereotypes often discriminate women at home or at work. Usually children who are exposed to gender stereotyping at a young age have limited opportunities. Children were taught to have certain roles as a kid are more likely to get a job that is related to their gender. The stereotypes on women, when they are little girls, burdened them because they are taught to act as a lower in status individual. Women had struggles to given their own identities and women would believe that being masculine was a way for them to succeed in a manly world.
Why hasn't this consistent pattern changed over time? All three authors seem to have come to the conclusion that any form of change in gender roles leaves individuals vulnerable to becoming the new social outcast or the picked on. Devor's article states that “Society demands different gender performances from us and rewards… or punishes… us differently for conformity to… or from, social norms” as does Kimmel and Kilbourne (472). In Kimmel's article, multiple students describe their fears of not becoming the perfect masculine stereotype through watching others who were victimized or called names like “pussy”, “wuss”, “so gay” for not properly fitting the mold of how their gender should act (543). However, this is just one example in Kimmel's article of the results of “stepping outside the box” of how important it is for individuals to stick to the conformity of the gender role they were assigned.
Gender Variation in my classroom discourse. Now a day, Education is becoming in one of the most crucial factors into an individual’s life where the society points out how someone behaves, acts and relates with others. It shows how talented and wise a person is. Into a classroom, there is a wide diversity among students where teacher should take advantage of it and might learn to manage it, understand it and respect it because learners come from different personal and cultural backgrounds. When a teacher comes in a classroom, he is getting immerse into an environment which its reality sometimes can be a big challenge to work with.
They tend to overestimate the ability of their child when its sex is favoured by the stereotype or on the contrary if they are not favoured to underestimate their ability (Jacobs & Eccles, 1992). This effect is illustrated by a study about reading abilities, which also shows that parents are not the only ones that influence their child: stereotypically girls are favoured in terms of reading. Teachers that had strong gender stereotypes influenced the self reading concepts of boys in grade 6 negatively unrelated to their actual performance, while no effect for girls was found (Retelsdorf, Schwartz, & Asbrock, 2015). Another negative effect that is created by conveying stereotypical gender roles is associated with the occupation the children choose in later years. Girls who spent more time with their fathers in their childhood were less likely to choose a gender-typical career, but boys that spent more time with their fathers were more likely to pursue a gender typical occupation, which shows the impact of the family even 15 years later; more traditional attitudes of the mothers also led to a more gender typical occupation for boys only (Lawson, Crouter, & McHale,
It has always been a hard reality to deal with. Despite this, I found hope in their resilience every time they greeted us with graceful smiles on their faces. The day I secured a job as a teacher, I knew to make a difference no matter how small. I had to change the mind-sets of the children I taught. I taught and always sought to encourage those girls and boys who were influenced by these enforced gender roles.
Australian students are faced with an array of stereotypes particularly surrounding gender. Curriculum resources used in schools, including texts such as fairy tales, contain male and female stereotypes which do not represent all children. As discussed by National Union of Teachers (2013), it is important for educators to challenge these stereotypes to create an inclusive environment. Furthermore, it is important for educators to understand that the relationships connecting gender role models and providing opportunities for children to connect with them directly relate to children 's own gender based behaviours (MacNaughton, 2000, p. 13-15). It is also imperative for educators to recognise and eradicate the many stereotypes which effect students
Therefore, when boys and girls are alienated from playing with certain toys as a young age, they are taught to alienate those who do not fit this gender binary, leading to a lack of awareness, understanding, and tolerance. These messages teach girls and boys to dress or act a certain way which carries with them as they get older. In a patriarchal society, femininity is seen as weak, less capable, fragile, inferior, and passive. Whereas, masculinity is defined as strong, competitive, and superior to women. These stereotypes are reinforced gender inequality within
At an early age, some children are able to distinguish differences between a male and female and the roles usually associated with each. However, even though they are able to relate certain characteristics, symbols, and actions through gender socialization, the unfortunate outcome of stereotyping transpires as a negative product to such a natural human occurrence of observing one’s surroundings and categorizing. Stereotyping gives rise to prejudice, which is an issue that still exists in many places and many adults, teenagers, and even young children practice it. Even though gender stereotyping is useful for the development of a child’s identity and sense of self, different factors of an individual’s environment tends to further reinforce and
