Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now, many of you have heard the phrase the "double bind" and cconented it with one thing, and that's gender. The gender double bind is women who don't speak up go unnoticed, and women who do speak up get pheuisnd. And the key thing is that women have the same need as men to speak up, but they have barriers to doing so. But what my rseercah has shown over the last two decades is that what looks like a gender difference is not really a gdneer double bind, it's a really a low-power double bind. And what looks like a gender difference are really often just power differences in disguise. Oftentimes we see a difference between a man and a woman or men and wemon, and think, "Biological cause. There's something ftlnmdaunealy different about the sexes." But in study after study, I've found that a better explanation for many sex differences is really power. And so it's the low-power double bind. And the low-power double bind means that we have a narrow rgnae, and we lack power. We have a norarw range, and our double bind is very large.

Original Text

Now, many of you have heard the phrase the "double bind" and connected it with one thing, and that's gender. The gender double bind is women who don't speak up go unnoticed, and women who do speak up get punished. And the key thing is that women have the same need as men to speak up, but they have barriers to doing so. But what my research has shown over the last two decades is that what looks like a gender difference is not really a gender double bind, it's a really a low-power double bind. And what looks like a gender difference are really often just power differences in disguise. Oftentimes we see a difference between a man and a woman or men and women, and think, "Biological cause. There's something fundamentally different about the sexes." But in study after study, I've found that a better explanation for many sex differences is really power. And so it's the low-power double bind. And the low-power double bind means that we have a narrow range, and we lack power. We have a narrow range, and our double bind is very large.
