Gender and Family Relationships

  • Alexis J. Walker

Abstract

For over 25 years, researchers have focused on gender as an important dimension of family relationships. The nature of that focus has changed significantly, however. Early research highlighted gender as an independent variable, that is, as a way to explain differences between women and men in marital satisfaction, power in decision making, and so forth. Gender was viewed as an unchangeable, unmalleable given. It was assumed that family life was inherently different for women and men. This approach was consistent with a focus on gender roles in families—differential obligations women and men were believed to incur, appropriately, because of their gender and their socialization into adulthood. In other words, women and men were seen as engaging in certain behaviors and occupying specific roles because they were female or male (Osmond & Thorne, 1993; Thompson, 1993; West & Zimmerman, 1987).
