a. Men are overall smarter than women, science is a male domain, all women are overemotional, and men never cry.

b. They believe that biology helps by providing evidence of hormonal influence on behavior and different brain structures of men and women, and by focusing on the DNA in our 23rd chromosomes which decide our sex.

c. It is impossible to answer that question with a strict division of aspects as merely culturally or merely biologically determined. However, it is becoming more apparent that the culture had quite a significant and mostly negative influence on gender roles. The view of gender roles as a predominantly cultural structure is now prevailing.
