Gender Intensification in Adolescence (Review of Foreign Research) 3441
The article is devoted to analysis of the views of Western writers on gender identity development in adolescence. It provides an overview of the studies based on the assumption of a possible strengthening of the social environment pressure on teenagers that leads to the intensification of gender identity, i.e., more pronounced expression of masculine behavior in boys and feminine behavior in girls.
Keywords: gender identity, intensification of gender identity, teen age
