"He Said, She Said": With a Twist

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The article discusses whether legal decisions issued by male and female judges in America are perceived differently as of 2016, and it also examines whether identical judgments concerning gender-related events are perceived in different ways due to a judge's gender, an evaluator's gender, or a combination of the two. Cognitive biases are addressed, along with an assessment of whether people deem sentences imposed by women judges on sex offenders to be more severe than sentences from male judges.
