Engaging in Gender Role Incongruent Behavior Thesis

… Gender and Sexuality

Gender Norms and Sexuality

This paper examines societal response to women who violate gender norms. To examine these reactions, the author engaged in three behaviors that are typically identified as male behavior: chewing tobacco in public, engaging in a football game with a group of males, and changing a tire while a male companion stood by and did nothing. People did not react in the hostile manner expected; in fact, the only hostile reaction was directed at the male bystander when the author changed the tire. However, though behavior was not hostile, it was also not geared towards encouraging women to defy gender norms.

Attitude and Behavior Developmental Task Term Paper


There is an acknowledged identity crisis present in the African-American race due to the high rates of incarceration and low education achievements. The college environment serves to influence the development required in the self-identity transition toward the self-actualization of the individual in gaining a view of identity characterized by achievement. There is a delay in achievement associated with the failure to accept self or group identity. This work will illustrate that attitude is linked to talk development and behavioral adjustment which is part of the requirement for making the commitment for achievement in educational attainment.

Women-Workforce Effects Term Paper

… This theory also suggests that leaders exhibit certain leadership styles and behaviors based on what people expect of them as a male or female; this expectancy is also referred to as gender roles (Eagly & Johannesen-Schmidt, 2001). Gender roles are defined as the "shared beliefs that apply to individuals on the basis of their socially identified sex" (Eagly & Johannesen-Schmidt, 2001, p. 781).

Thus based on this theory leadership roles are assumed to result from "perceiver's observations" of men and women as "concentrated in different social roles in the family and paid employment" (Eagly & Johannesen-Schmidt, 2001, p. 781). One logically concludes then that leadership styles take on the form of stereotypical behaviors and styles assigned men and women based on their sex, not on…. [read more]

Terrence Webster-Doyle (personal communication, July 1, 2011) illuminates that by effectively challenging the self-imposed limits of each child, students will quickly realize that they can accomplish much more than they ever thought possible. Essentially, this parallels the old adage that we are each our own worst enemy -- the biggest fight for each of us, regardless of age, is within.

Relational Cultural Theory

As with all disciplines research and theory develops to fill a need, something that is dissonant or out of sorts with either an individual or society. In the case of Relational Cultural Theory (RCT) it seeks to fulfill a deficiency in both.

… Human Motivation

It is often claimed that certain negative outcomes of frustrated need can be countered by social and institutional support.

(Franken, 2007, p. 227) in one scenario Peter (15), experiences the frustrated need associated with poverty and a difficult life and responds with appropriate hostile feelings.
