This week we have links that are all about “the gender gap.” Whether it’s electoral politics, professional salaries, or conduct in the classroom, these articles take note of a distinct separation– a gulf, even?– between men and women.
*Women, men, and the 2012 election
*Is feminism creating a harmful classroom environment for young boys?
*Differences between men and women in university classes
*The vicious cycle of the gender pay gap
*The global gender gap is closing, but the US lags behind other countries
*David Brooks thinks only girls like books about feelings
*Scholarly publishing and the gender gap
*Has the struggle for women’s equality made the gender gap worse?
What are your thoughts on a “gap” between the genders? Is the concept really just unhelpful essentializing? Is there (still, really, actually, etc?) a gulf between the behaviors, experiences, and opportunities of men and women? Tell us what you think!
