Issues in psychology

Gender bias

     - The differential treatment or representation of men and women based on stereotypes rather than real differences.

     - E.g. All participants in a study are male, but the conclusion is generalised to all people. 

     - Androcentrism - this is where there is a focus on men, often to the neglect or exclusion of women (e.g. historically most psychologists were male, researching male interests and using male participants in studies).
