Describe one gender stereotype that exists. Then explain how gender theories (e.g., gender schema theory, moral reasoning, gender stratification theories) and related research might explain the development of this stereotype. Finally, explain the possible implications for men and women or boys and girls if this stereotype you identified is perpetuated. Be specific.
