Perceptions of Gender Abstract Societies across the globe prescribed gender roles to girls and boys. Gender stereotypes are belief systems that help a person to process gender information. The proposed research aims to investigate the perceptions of an infant’s gender amongst high school students. It is anticipated that the participant’s gender will interact with their perception of the infant’s gender. The randomly selected sample from across four low income schools in the city of Cairns will be stratified by age and gender. The two conditions consist of a photograph of an infant wearing either pink or blue clothing. The design is a 2 (adolescent gender) x 2 (conditions) x 3(adolescent age groups) between- groups ANOVA. Means and standard deviations from six bipolar adjective pairs will be analyzed.
