The articles for this week address issues associated with sexism and homophobia.
Glick et al. (2004)’s research addresses the issue of gender attitudes and stereotypes and how they serve to support gender inequality.
Lips (2003) addresses the gender-pay gap, notes that significant decreases in this gap have not yet been achieved, and states that psychologists have a responsibility to address this issue due to our unique skill and knowledge base.
Meyer (2003) reviews research that addresses the elevated risk for mental health problems associated with being a gay man, lesbian, or bisexual. Meyer provides a model to explain this elevated risk, and states that the risk is associated with minority stress stigma, prejudice, and discrimination. Meyer states that this discrimination creates significant stress that leads to mental health struggles. Meyer describes public policy issues and social change as related to the aforementioned theory.
Stewart et al. (2004) state that in order for optimal women’s mental health to be achieved, there needs to be an emphasis on social, economic, and cultural issues, not just on the direct services that are provided to women. They state that in order for women to achieve an optimal level of mental health, negative societal attitudes towards women must be changed.
Consider how research and/or practice that is focused on gender issues might be effectively and creatively employed as tools of social change in the service of reducing sexism or homophobia.
Write at least one concrete action that could be taken with to further the change you are considering. Describe any ethical implications related to the action you propose.
