Cecilia Ridgeway, a gender issues expert at Stanford, said when reading the study, “I did not think: ‘Oh, eBay needs to fix this.’ I don’t think this is a key thing we’ve got to do for gender equality.”

Still, she said she viewed the study as an indicator of “the importance of gender as a way of making sense of any human being. That doesn’t mean people endorse these beliefs; they just know them.”
