This video about gender stereotypes.
Gender stereotypes are widespread ideas in society about the characteristics and behavior of representatives of different genders, primarily men and women. Gender stereotypes are closely related to existing gender roles in a given society and serve to maintain and reproduce them. In particular, gender stereotypes contribute to the maintenance of gender inequality.
The content and severity of gender stereotypes vary in different cultures and in different historical periods, although there are some cross-cultural similarities. Scientific studies of gender differences show that gender stereotypes in general do not correspond to reality, but their stability is ensured, in particular, by cognitive distortions that allow people to selectively perceive and interpret information coming from the outside world.
