Prejudice is a complex mix of mental perceptions, associated emotions, and attitudes toward members of another group that often results in social distance and manifests in overt acts of discrimination. An important first step in addressing the roots of prejudice and discrimination is to trace the historical sources and the psychological reinforcements.

In this Assignment, you will explore historical examples of sexual and gender prejudice and discrimination, drawing on how prejudice is perpetuated across generations and analyzing the implications of persistent prejudice and gender inequality in society.
