According to the Gender Bias Learning Project, gender bias falls in to four patterns:

1. “Prove it again,” when women must work twice as hard to get half as far.

2. “Maternal wall,” when mothers are assumed to be incompetent and uncommitted.

3. “Double bind,” when women must choose between being liked and respected.

4. “Gender wars,” when gender bias turns into conflict among women.

The project’s website offers videos illustrating these patterns,  clips from gender bias experts, and other educational resources. Strategies for coping with gender bias are also offered. To reach the project, a effort from the Center for WorkLife Law at UC Hastings College of the Law, click here.
