A widespread notion persists: that women, when compared with their male counterparts, are more naturally inclined toward peace. Is moral superiority a feminine virtue? Traditionally, women are characterized as maternal, nurturing, and gentle; whereas men are seen as having a propensity for violence and belligerence. Women talk about their problems; men solve conflict physically, requiring an outlet for their “natural” aggression. When female-perpetrated violence does occur, it is treated as unnatural or aberrant. This binary notion of gender is reinforced through socio-cultural stereotyping.
