Harvard Business Review

Honestly, it’s puzzling that an inanimate, imaginary thing such as a brand should seem to have gender. But obviously brands do send out gender signals, and sometimes they’re quite strong. In fact, recent research shows that the more intense the gender signals, the greater the brand value — so not only do we readily perceive gender in brands, we like to perceive gender in brands. Think of brand imagery for cars — food — clothing.
