About the Author

Dr. Gervais has a dual Ph.D. in Psychology and Women's Studies from the Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Gervais' research examines power and subtle prejudice. Examining behaviors like the objectifying gaze, patronization, and interpersonal confrontation, Dr. Gervais has found that the discriminatory acts of powerful people are often more subtle and nuanced than previously thought, but they still have negative consequences for recipients. Dr. Gervais also examines the relationship between subtle prejudice, public policy, and law.
