Before puberty, boys and girls who play sports together can learn many things about themselves. As the web site www.youthletic.com said “Signing your child up for coed youth sports can help them build important life skills like confidence and can help dispel harmful gender stereotypes”.

This was both professional and managerial positions.

    than their male counterparts to do as well as them. Women serving in elected office typically have more experience, bring back more money to their districts, and speak more in Congress (Pearson and McGhee, 2013; Anzia and Berry, 2011). Given the fact that women tend to underestimate their qualifications for office, it is reasonable to think that, generally, once women make the decision to run they may actually be more qualified than their male counterparts. Even in adolescence, “male students…
