Abstract

The article concerns an issue of sex in psychology. In this work a contemporary approach and history of gender studies were presented. The term sex was replaced with gender in modern concepts, and it means cultural sex evinced in presentation and human behaviour. In this work four main prevailing theories in gender psychology were also presented: a theory of social learning, cognitive and progress theory, gender script theory and gender scheme theory.
