    Answer: True

    Explanation: Socialization is the ever continuous process of interactions by which individuals acquire all the skills needed to survive in their social group or society.

    Gender socialization is how individuals are taught how to behave in a way that will be acceptable and conform to society's expectation of their particular gender. For example, some societies believe girls should only be seen and not heard; any female who behaves contrary in this group is seen as a rebel or pariah.

    Gender socialization starts primarily from the family and may occur through schools, peer groups and media outlets. It usually starts in early childhood and individuals who depart from their gender expectations are mocked, ridiculed and may go as far as being ostracized or hurt in extreme cases. This may result in low self esteem, depression and other psychological issues.
