Gender Constancy

This is the third and final stage in Kohlberg’s cognitive explanation of gender development. It begins at around six or seven years old, when a child start to understand that gender remains the same across situations (e.g. if a man puts on a dress he is still a man). Kohlberg claimed that it is only when children have reached the gender consistency stage that they begin to learn about gender-appropriate behaviours.
