Society defines our gender expectations even before we are born, as parents tend to pick out pink items for their baby girls and blue for boys. Below is an interesting comparison of expected gender qualities, and those qualities may limit individuals from expressing their true selves. If a nurturing father stays home to care for his children, for example, others may wonder why he is not working to provide for his family, or why the mother is not taking on that role. If a woman chooses to be independent and provide for herself instead of marrying and raising a family, others are more likely to view her differently than other women.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this. I am making a powerpoint of Kohlberg's theory and adding gender stereotypes. I found your chart comparison and love it.
