Abstract

Gender roles are set early in life (Condry & Ross, 1985). Boys are often encouraged in their rough-and-tumble play while girls are discouraged from it (Condry, 1985). Girls are treated as more fragile and are encouraged to act ladylike, including not inflicting physical harm upon others. Much of how we act in society, including aggression, is based on these social norms. The media is full of physically aggressive acts. School shootings, war, terrorism, assaults; the list goes on and on. Who do we imagine performing these tasks? Men or women? Research has shown it to be men (Zeichner, Parrott, & Frey, 2003). Are women equally as aggressive? Gossiping, back stabbing, and social rejection are all forms of aggression typically associated with women. Studies suggest that women are just as relationally aggressive as men are physically aggressive (Zeichner, Parrott, & Frey, 2003).
