    The Psychology of Gender is an Open Education Resource (OER) written by Kristy McRaney, Alexis Bridley, and Lee Daffin through Washington State University which studies issues related to the psychology of gender across 13 modules. Our discussion begins by explaining what gender is in relation to sex, moves to how the construct is studied, and then applies the lenses of social, developmental, cognitive, physiological, health, clinical, and industrial/organizational psychology as well as education and human sexuality.
