    • Gendered Differences in Same-Sex Friendships
      HyoJi Park
      Sociology 235 Gender role in society
    • Interests
      I saw many cases Male’s friendship and Female’s friendship are different. These differences may represent gendered stereotypes. So, I guess that the differences may be caused by cultural effects. Because I am from Korea, which has strong gendered stereotypes, I start to research about this.
    • Hypothesis
      Since Korean culture is still contributed by strong stereotypes in gender, Korean teenagers will show male’s intimacy and female’s intimacy as inexpressiveness and expressiveness, activity oriented and person oriented, side-to-side and face-to-face style of interaction, and deep lasting relationship and short period relationship by following the stereotypes of male and female, such as calm and friendly.
    • Background
      Kimmel says…. “there are sex differences in same sex friendship.”
    • Cont. Background
      According to the article ofBeyond intimacy: conceptualizing sex difference in same-sex friendships, there are no differences.
      • The mean length of closest friendships
      • The number of times spoke with closest friends
      • The number of times saw closest friends
      But, there is one sex difference
      • Girls trust their friends more than boys.
    • Cont. Background
      According to the article of Friendship maintenance: an analysis of individual and dyad behavior, relationship with the same-sex best friends mostly share positivity, supportiveness, openness, and interaction.
    • Survey

      12 short-answer questions in terms of their own friendships are asked.
    • Result

    • Conclusion
      There are both sex differences and
      no difference in the same sex friendships.
      Differences- Meaning of Best Friends
      - Time of Speaking with Best Friend on the phone daily
      - Activity with Best Friend
      - The Number of who share secret with Best Friend
      - Percentage of how much they trust Best Friend
      No Differences-Number of Best Friend
      - Length of Being Friendship
      - Number of Contact to Best Friend in a week
    • Cont. Conclusion
      There are cultural effects. Korean culture is conservative and has strong stereotypes in male and female. The stereotypes result in people’s perception about the gendered images. In reality, there are some differences in the way to get along with best friends, to talking about self-disclosure, and to show their intimacy; on the contrary, there are no differences in maintenance of friendships such as similar results in the number of contact with closest friends, in emotional expression, in the length of friendships. Unlike my expectation, Korean boys did not have gendered images. I assume that Korean society becomes involved in gender equality.
