Stage 3. Socio-psychological analysis of their own gender roles

The third stage is devoted to reflection and introspection.

Exercise 1

This task is aimed at identifying gender stereotypes of students. The teacher proposes to explore their own gender stereotypes by performing the following task.

Each participant is invited to answer in turn the following questions.

1. What did they tell me in childhood (parents and other adults) about what a girl / boy should be (character traits, responsibilities)?

2. What information came to me about the relationship between a man and a woman (patterns of behavior)?

3. What “messages” do I follow in life?

Work is done in pairs. Each participant is given a task for 7 minutes. It is very important that the participants answer the questions one by one: first, one answers the questions, the other listens attentively, then vice versa. The teacher monitors the time and announces when the participants should change roles.

At the end of the work the teacher asks to share with each participant the results of their work.

Task 2

On the basis of the results of the previous assignment - identified their own gender stereotypes - students are asked to compile a list of their own gender roles and describe them according to the scheme of the second assignment of the second stage. The teacher is reminiscent of the gender role analysis scheme.

In conclusion, the teacher asks for feedback.

1. What are your own gender roles you have identified?

2. Which roles hinder you more in life, and which ones help?

What did you expect to receive during the course of this assignment?

At the last stage, the feedback is very important, since pronouncing the results initially discharges the emotions caused by the assignment, pushes the formulation of personal conclusions, and allows you to learn from other people’s experiences.

At the end of all stages of the lesson, the teacher asks students to take stock.

1. Gender stereotypes are transmitted to a person throughout life and form gender roles.

2. Gender roles are a kind of pattern, a behavior pattern that characterizes “male” and “female”. Gender roles prescribe not only certain actions, but also adherence to certain beliefs and values; operate in a specific context, have their own clear focus, benefits and disadvantages.

3. There are opposite gender roles in their content, which can give rise to both intrapersonal and interpersonal conflicts.

4. The negative side of assimilating gender roles is that they can inhibit a person’s personal development and reinforce gender inequality in society.
