For this discussion, keep in mind the sociological concepts of socialization, anticipatory socialization, role taking, gender, and identity.
Based on what you’ve read in the Newman book, in combination with your observations from your own life and the lives of those around you, describe the process of gender role socialization in families, schools, and the media.  How do these institutions “create” gendered boys and girls?  Give examples whenever appropriate in your discussion.
In your opinion, in what ways is this socialization a “good” thing and in what ways is it a “bad” thing?
