An overview of Gender Inequalities and implications in Physical Education
  • Gender Inequality in PE
    • PE Creates Gender Stereotypes of Gender Norms
      • PE Classes end up having the athletically gifted males overpower everyone else
        • Women end up retreating to the back of class or encouraging the male peers in most athletic activities
        • All of the males competing reinforce gender theory and hegemonic masculinity
          • Homophobic teasing characterizes macsuliniity in early adulthood and anti-gay slurs tend to be directly at other gay boys, but boys try to be men out of fear of not being manly enough
        • PE used to reinforce mainly to boys in order to help them physically become "real men" so that they aren't seen as feminine or not masculine
    • Women's Percentage of Participation of participation in PE drops dramatically
      • Girls deem sports "uncool" by early adolescence
        • Sports deemed 'not cool" out of fear of being teased from classmates or peers
        • Girls Eventually lose interest in sports because sports are masculine
        • Girls report to feel like they're crossing the gender barrier and becoming "masculine"
          • "Stereotype Threat" is where people perform worse at an activity because of the pressure of negative stereotypes of gender performance
            • When boys and girls are NOT told which gender is better, girls do equally as well in given tasks
            • When girls are told that they're inferior, they are affected by stereotype threat, and they do worse than the men.
              • Idea
    • Male Teachers give greater feedback to male students in PE more than Female Students
      • Boys respond much better to same-sex teachers and look to them as role models for how to be masculine
      • Male Teachers use the games-approach for most of their classes for teaching
        • On the other hand, female teachers emphasize progression from simple to complex tasks
    • Positive relationship between girl's participation in sports help with their self-esteem
      • When told girls are the better gender, some groups of women feel so superior that they become egalitarian and stop trying
        • Boys will do what they can and give extra effort to prove they're the superior gender
      • Media helps with the overall view of women'
        • Girls see female athletes as strong and models to look up to, ignoring gender differences
        • College Age women view female athletes with praise, yet some jealousy and develop self-doubt and thus reinforce the negative sterotyping
