Though most research in the psychology of gender highlights the differences between females and males, this supplementary collection of readings also investigates how they are alike. With the aim of providing an accurate picture of gender, the authors have culled readings that not only explore commonalties between females and males, but also probe the unique ways that people of different races, ethnicities, social classes and sexual orientations experience gender. The result is a model that views gender in terms of thinking, feeling, and behaving as the result of a complex interplay among biological, psychological, social and cultural processes.
