Chodorow thinks that these gender differences should and can bechanged. Feminine and masculine personalities play a crucial role inwomen's oppression since they make females overly attentive to theneeds of others and males emotionally deficient. In order to correctthe situation, both male and female parents should be equally involvedin parenting (Chodorow 1995, 214). This would help in ensuring thatchildren develop sufficiently individuated senses of selves withoutbecoming overly detached, which in turn helps to eradicate commongender stereotypical behaviours.
