Writing Process

I began this essay by researching the effects brothers have on women's careers, which was a topic of personal interest to me since I have two brothers. Upon finding that women with brothers are at a career disadvantage compared to women without brothers, I investigated why brothers cause a disadvantage by studying more scholarly articles about how parents raise boys and girls differently. Then I conducted personal research about the impacts parental sex-typing has on children with same-sex versus mixed-sex siblings to analyze the extent to which people from my generation were raised according to traditional gender norms that could impact their future careers.
