The research on gender has involved a variety of issues related to gender. A series of investigations examined the development of gender beliefs in children, and some of the implications of those beliefs.
Research with adults has examined the relationship between gender stereotypes and leadership stereotypes, and the evaluative associations contained in adult gender stereotypes.
More recent research involves how gender roles affect interpersonal relationships, especially romantic relationships.
