The power of speaking ladylike
Does gender make a difference in the way politicians speak and are spoken to? This is the question posed in a new study by Dr. Carmelia Suleiman and Daniel O'Connell from Florida International University published this week in the Journal of Psycholinguistic Research. The study of transcripts of three television and two radio interviews of Bill and Hillary Clinton provided Suleiman with a unique opportunity to study perspectives of two politicians and their interviewers.

Review article provides evidence on the biological nature of gender identity
Medical care of transgender patients, including surgical and hormonal treatment, has largely been met with resistance by physicians in favor of psychiatric treatment, owing to misconceptions that gender identity can be changed. According to a review article in Endocrine Practice, there is increasing evidence of a biological basis for gender identity that may change physicians' perspective on transgender medicine and improve health care for these patients.

Gender differences: Viewing TV coverage of terrorism has more negative effect on women
Exposure to television coverage of terrorism causes women to lose psychological resources much more than men, which leads to negative feelings and moodiness. This has been shown in a new study, conducted at the University of Haifa and soon to be published in Anxiety, Stress & Coping, that examined the differences between men and women in a controlled experiment environment. (2011-10-27)

Male/female health differences during life's final season
Men and women suffer somewhat life-threatening health problems about equally in old age, a Penn State-led study has found; although, the genders differ in the numbers of very life threatening and not-at-all life threatening illnesses that befall them. (2002-05-01)

Feminist view of the body
We do not just have bodies, we are bodies. Dutch researcher Silvia Stoller used this proposition from phenomenology as a basis for studying the theories of three influential feminist philosophies. Her study sheds new light on feminist philosophy and provides a basis for further research. (2006-10-04)

Women are sort of more tentative than men, aren't they?
Women hedge, issue disclaimers and ask questions when they communicate, language features that can suggest uncertainty, lack of confidence and low status. But men do the same. (2009-08-24)

Study: Sports broadcasting gender roles echoed on Twitter
Twitter provides an avenue for female sports broadcasters to break down gender barriers, yet it currently serves to express their subordinate sports media roles. This is the key finding of a new study by Clemson University researchers and published in the most recent issue of Journal of Sports Media. (2014-09-10)

Gender gap in spatial reasoning starts in elementary school, meta-analysis finds

Taking care of business shouldn't be just for men
Studies reveal that in the dog-eat-dog, look-out-for-No. 1, highly competitive business world, only the aggressive, risk-taking alpha male can expect to succeed as an entrepreneur. That statement may sound sexist, but it represents a commonly held gender stereotype. A team led by a University of Missouri researcher found that these stereotypes influence whether or not men and women decide to pursue entrepreneurship as a viable career option. (2008-05-22)

Men and women process emotions differently
Women rate emotional images as more emotionally stimulating than men do and are more likely to remember them. However, there are no gender-related differences in emotional appraisal as far as neutral images are concerned. These were the findings of a large-scale study by a research team at the University of Basel that focused on determining the gender-dependent relationship between emotions, memory performance and brain activity. The results will be published in the latest issue of the Journal of Neuroscience. (2015-01-20)

Report Among the Highlighted Topics on Gender Differences in the October Edition of the Journal of Applied Physiology (2001-10-17)

Not so fast -- sex differences in the brain are overblown
People love to speculate about differences between the sexes, and many brain imaging studies have reported sex differences in brain structure or activity. But we should be skeptical about such reports, writes psychological scientist Cordelia Fine in Current Directions in Psychological Science. The results from these studies may not withstand the tests of improved analyses -- and it's too soon to know what such results might mean for differences in male and female minds. (2010-10-27)

Gender discrimination a reason why females choose careers outside the hard sciences
Both male and female scientists view gender discrimination as a major reason women choose to pursue careers in biology rather than physics, according to new research from Rice University. (2012-10-22)

Parents favor boys over girls for free heart treatment in Northern India
Parents in Northern India favour boys over girls when it comes to making sure that their children's heart problems are corrected -- even when treatment is provided completely free of charge -- reveals research published in the online journal Heart Asia. (2016-05-25)

What about the boys?
According to Judith Kleinfeld, professor of psychology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks in the US, issues affecting boys are more serious than those affecting girls, but they have been neglected by policy makers. Her review of issues characterizing American boyhood, how they compare to those affecting girls, and the lack of initiatives in place to address them has just been published in the June issue of Springer's journal Gender Issues.

Acceptance is protection: How can parents support gender nonconforming and transgender children?
How should parents respond when their four years old son insists on wearing girls' clothes, or their daughter switches to using a male version of their name? These are the questions increasingly being asked of family therapist Jean Malpas who writes in Family Process about a new approach to support parents with gender nonconforming and transgender children. (2011-12-06)

Women may be more susceptible to the lung damaging effects of smoking than men, according to new research by Inga-Cecilie Soerheim, M.D., and her colleagues from Channing Laboratory, Brigham and Women's Hospital and University of Bergen, Norway. (2009-05-18)

Young girls less likely to attribute brilliance to their own gender
Six-year-old girls are less likely than boys to believe that members of their gender are brilliant, reports a new study, which also found that girls at this age are more likely to shy away from activities said to be for children who are 'really, really smart.' (2017-01-26)

New data improve techniques for determining whether a jaw bone comes from a man or woman
The scientific breakthrough, carried out by researchers at UGR and the Spanish National Research Council, is of great significance to the field of biological anthropology. It also has further implications for paleoanthropology, paleodemographics, forensic science and orthodontics, among other disciplines. (2016-04-29)

Parents misled by advocates of single-sex education
There is no scientific basis for teaching boys and girls separately, according to Lise Eliot from The Chicago Medical School. Her review reveals fundamental flaws in the arguments put forward by proponents of single-sex schools to justify the need of teaching teach boys and girls separately. Eliot shows that neuroscience has identified few reliable differences between boys' and girls' brains relevant to learning or education. Her work is published online in Springer's journal Sex Roles. (2011-08-18)

Why men say they've had more lifetime sexual partners than women
The disparity between the number of sexual partners reported by men and women can largely be explained by a tendency among men to report extreme numbers of partners, and to estimate rather than count their lifetime total, a new study in The Journal of Sex Research finds. (2018-07-25)

Could playing 'boys' games help girls in science and math?
The observation that males appear to be superior to females in some fields of academic study has prompted a wealth of research. Although there is no difference in general intelligence between the sexes, former studies have found that overall men do much better in tests of spatial ability than women. A new review, published in Springer's journal Sex Roles, sheds light on the factor of gender-roles, contributing to these gender differences in spatial ability. (2013-04-04)

Women catching up to men in lung cancer deaths: Gender equality?
In many countries, including the United States, women's death rates from lung cancer have been catching up to the rates for men. Is this a deadly by-product of gender equality? No, according to a study by Fred Pampel of the University of Colorado. Pampel shows that the gap is best explained historically. (2003-02-20)

Female urologists still earn less money than their male counterparts
Although the field of urology remains largely male dominated, the proportion of female physicians specializing in urology has increased from less than 0.5percent in 1981 to 10 percent today, and 33 percent of students entering urology internships and residency programs are now female. Researchers report in The Journal of Urology that gender inequality between male and female urologists persists with women currently earning approximately $76,000 less than men annually. (2016-01-05)

More female managers do not reduce wage gap
Are wage differences between men and women decreasing as more women attain managerial positions? A new Swedish report from the Uppsala Center for Labor Studies at Uppsala University and the Institute for Labor Market Policy Evaluation concludes that they are not. Manager gender is tied to neither wages nor, accordingly, wage differences on the labor market. (2011-12-16)

Women fare better than men, but need more blood after kidney cancer surgery
Women do better than men after surgical removal of part or all of a cancerous kidney, with fewer post-operative complications, including dying in the hospital, although they are more likely to receive blood transfusions related to their surgery. But Henry Ford Hospital researchers who documented these gender differences can't say why they exist. (2012-05-15)

Time trends in STEMI -- improved treatment and outcome but gender gap persists
In spite of an increased attention to gender differences in treatment of myocardial infarctions, focus on adherence to guidelines and a change in predominant therapy, the gender difference in treatment and mortality regarding the big infarctions -- STEMI -- has not diminished from 1998-2000 to 2004-2006. For some therapies, it has actually increased. (2011-08-29)

The act of talking is not an area where ability is usually considered along gender lines. However, a new study published in Springer's journal Sex Roles has found subtle differences between the sexes in their story-relating ability and specifically the act of reminiscing. (2013-03-27)

Viewing gender-specific objects influences perception of gender identity
Spending too much time looking at high heels may influence how a viewer perceives the gender of an androgynous face, according to new research published Sept. 26 in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Amir Homayoun Javadi of Technische Universit├Ąt, Dresden and his colleagues. (2012-09-26)

Women less likely to endorse independence in gender-unequal societies
Women in countries with great gender inequality are more likely than men to support authoritarian values, according to a new study of 54 countries. The shift away from beliefs in independence and freedom is the result, social psychologists say, of authoritarianism helping such women cope with a threatening environment. (2012-07-02)

Locker room talk: How male athletes portray female athletic trainers
A college quarterback coming into the locker room with a dislocated shoulder wouldn't care whether the athletic trainer taking care of him is male or female -- or would he? A study from North Carolina State University examining male football players' perceptions of female athletic trainers -- and their comfort level in being treated by females -- shows that the quarterback would most likely prefer a male, unless the dislocated shoulder made him depressed. (2010-07-13)

Clinical research doesn't do enough to study sex and gender differences
Potential gender differences in clinical management are under-researched. A systematic analysis of the incorporation of sex and gender into research design, published in the open access journal BMC Medicine, has found that, although there has been a progressive improvement since the 90s, there exists a striking under-representation of research about gender differences in patient management. (2010-11-08)

Women make up only a third of all authors who have published research on COVID-19 since the beginning of the pandemic in January this year, and even fewer of them are senior authors on these papers, suggests an analysis in BMJ Global Health. (2020-06-11)

Greater job satisfaction for transgender employees
Transgender individuals in the workplace can sometimes feel stigmatized, either through the actions and attitudes of their coworkers, or through their own fears of being treated as an 'other.' But recent research from Larry Martinez at Portland State University shows that the experiences of employees who transition genders is highly dependent on the interactions they have with their coworkers.
