... differences might be. According to our research the inherent differences between male and female culture are the different roles that society holds for them and the ways these roles lead to different communication styles.

When faced with trying to adapt to these male characteristics, women encounter many different obstacles. One obstacle a success-oriented woman faces is the stereotypes generated by society.

They are called pushy, angry, and accused of sleeping their way to the top. A woman who has to face these types of accusations and stereotypes cannot effectively complete the tasks assigned to her.

... by glowering mug shots or by footage of them being led around in handcuffs, their arms held by uniformed white policemen."

... perhaps the most obvious conclusion, which is that basic patterns of male and female brain asymmetry seem to be more similar than they are different (Tavris 55).

34: Misconceive’o By John Leo
... beginning of the article. The central idea is very direct and easy to locate. It appears at the end of the first paragraph and simply states “Episode I: The Phantom Menace is packed with awful stereotypes.” Mr. Leo wrote this piece not only for informative purposes, but also to convince a particular audience that, whether intentional or not, characters have taken on harmful images some may find offensive. He is not speaking only to his fairly educated, loyal readers, but also to those who may have taken part in producing the movie. Mr. Leo makes visible to his readers what he believes to be stereotypes in the film. People may not have noticed these before, so he makes clear definitions and comparisons. To the rest of the audience, those who had a hand in making the movie, he makes a ... plea not to redevelop these characters in future films. Mr. Leo uses several analogies and examples in his presentation, and they are all tied to his thesis.

Mr. Leo finds that “Watto, the fat, greedy junk dealer with wings, is ...

... minorities such as African Americans, Native Indians, and Hispanics. Asian Pacific Americans are the third largest minority and the fastest growing of minority groups in the United States of America. The world is full of stereotypes. Some are good and some of them are bad. Stereotypes result from wide publicity given of negative actions of a few members within a group or from illusions created by legend or the entertainment industry. Misconceptions about groups of people become embedded in our minds and prompt us to think differently about each other. Everyone is guilty of falling prey to a stereotype. Corporate America is no different when it comes to media driven stereotypes of Asian Pacific Americans. Our society views Asian Pacific Americans as a race that is extremely motivated, occupationally successful, normally nonviolent, culturally resourceful, passive politically and majority law-abiding citizens. However, Asian Americans have ...
