Psychology of Gender: Course Reflection

Sometimes things are right in front of our eyes, but we tend to ignore them. The same has

happened with me. I never thought about gender or gender differences seriously. I just knew that

I am a female and I have to do this and I have to do that as dictated by the society, but I did not

know that my overall development is based on the theories of gender differences. I did not know

that gender differences are affected by biological, social and political factors. The course and the

modules helped me to understand my gender and also why I am different from others. It has also

helped me to change my perspective about others and now I can look at others with a softer

viewpoint and understand their problems too.

The research articles and theories on psychology of gender were enlightening and helped me to

broaden my views about stereotyping, the impact of society and also the impact of close people

around us. It was great to learn that I have some of the qualities of my parents too and I have

learned some good things from my father, mother and siblings. My nature has been molded

because of their kind love and upbringing.
