Gender Based Focal Points

Holm, Jerker LU (2000) In Games and Economic Behavior 32(2). p.292-314
Abstract
The subjects behaved significantly more “hawkish” in an experimental battle of the sexes game when the co-player was a woman compared to when it was a man. Discrimination helped the parties to coordinate and increase the average earnings in the subject group of mixed sex, compared to the unisex groups.
