All presenters in this poster session conducted original empirical studies in the psychology of women discipline. Adopting either content analysis or survey methodology, student researchers worked in pairs to conduct investigations on a range of issues related to women or gender. Content analysis projects, which involved systematic evaluations of film or television representations, examined portrayals of African-American female characters, leadership styles of female “bosses,” characters with lesbian and gay identities, and the sexualization of girls. Four survey study projects assessed differences in perceptions of male and female respondents in varying contexts: judgments about the severity of crimes when committed by males vs. females, beliefs about the seriousness of pain complaints in male vs. female patients, attitudes toward alcohol and intoxication in male vs. female drinkers, and views of mindfulness. Additional survey studies evaluated male and female students’ perceptions of faculty, male and female experiences of cyberbulling, beliefs about the gender wage gap, and the relationship between spirituality and feminism. All 12 posters will contain summaries of investigators’ questions, methods, findings, and conclusions, considering implications of the research for larger disciplinary and societal issues
