After watching and reflecting on the video, answer the following questions.

1. According to Ferree and Wade "Our gender binary glasses, acquired as we learn the ways of our culture, “help us see the world the way most other people around us do, but they also help us preserve the binary itself” How are we complicit in “gendering” the world around us? 

2. According to Ferree and Wade “Whenever stereotypes are activated, those stereotypes influence our attention, thinking, and memory, and they do so in their own favor.” Stereotypes are so powerful, in fact, that they are a source of false memories.” What do the authors mean by this?
