    Gender Studies My decision to take the extracts from literary discourse to illustrate the differences between the male and female manner of writing was dictated by the fact that it is more interesting to search for such differences in this very discourse, then in scientific or newspaper, where there are strict rules of how to write (non-personal narration, non-emotiveness, usage of terms; laconic phrases, etc.) In literary discourse one may write whatever one wishes. (Jane Austen. Pride Prejudic...

    1,763 words
    1. Introduction. Carol Gilligan (1982) sparked a heated academic debate with her popular book In a different Voice: Psychological Theory and Women's Development.

  • Gender Differences And Inequalities
    972 words
    Although Bornstein argues that gender is entirely socially constructed I find it hard to believe that he is completely correct. I do agree that gender is influenced by the world we are born into. I understand that from birth we are partially programmed by our society to become something, but I do not agree that this is the determining factor in what we become as people. I feel that it's only a small part of our modern society (known as traditions) that are fighting to fit us in a certain categor...
  • Difference In Gender And Altruistic Behaviour
    454 words
    ARE WOMEN MORE ALTRUISTIC THEN MEN Darwin (1859, cited in Gross, 1988) in his book on the Origin of Species (1859) stated species evolved through the process of natural selection in which only the fittest survive. This implies selfish behaviour. However, some species do show altruism (e. g., rabbits banging on the ground to alert others of danger). Altruism has been defined as helping someone in need with no expectation of receiving something in return. Humans also show altruism but psychologist...
  • Gender Differences

    Nature or nurture? The video we watched in class regarding society's take on sexuality roles provoked much food for thought. Before this video, I had formed my own opinions on the subject when reading zines and random online articles. It's a popular subject that I see addressed over and over again, especially by teenagers my own age -- which makes sense, I guess, this supposedly being the time where we come into our own by searching for that "identity". Previously, I did think much of our ways s...
