In 1974, at a time when gender studies were investing several disciplines and departments of American colleges and universities, Sandra L. Bem, a researcher in social psychology, elaborated the Bem Sex Role Inventory (B.S.R.I). Made up of 20 items, the inventory invited participants to determine the degree to which they embraced and identified with the social and cultural gender roles as they had been framed in the 1970s American society. Out of her research, Sandra Bem developed the concept of psychological androgyny and posited that an individual's psychological balance was reached by the latter's capacity to find an intermediary position between the "masculine" and the "feminine".
