Social psychologists have often assumed that situations and behaviour are gender neutral, yet assumptions about gender have affected the questions they have posed as well as the answers they have provided. The authors of this volume explore the ways in which social psychology has simultaneously ignored and been deeply influenced by gender. They also consider the ways in which gender differences are not the same as sex differences.
