Summary

This paper presents a brief overview of behavioral and biological research that implicates real gender differences as a basis for stereotypical behavior patterns of men and women. A commentary follows that addresses the reactions to the findings by some feminist psychologists and by those feminists who advocate women's rights in the popular press and other media. The focus is on the potentially damaging results to women's causes already losing ground in some quarters of society. The popular feminist leaderships' refusal to acknowledge the research as useful and valid adds to a growing belief in many young women that the Feminist Movement is too radical and irrational for them. The paper concludes with suggestions for mitigating the negative backlash that is occurring as a result. Contains 15 references. (EH)
