Kohlberg’s theory (1966) is an example of a cognitive developmental approach which emphasises the role of thinking or cognition in the development of gender. The basic principle of Kohlberg’s theory is that a child's understanding of gender develops with age (due to maturation). As part of the theory, Kohlberg identified three stages in gender development: gender identity; gender stability; and gender constancy.
