This looks to me like a gross overgeneralization. Furthermore, it's a
rather dismissive overgeneralization (since it is, in essence, a claim
that no other information exists, relevant to this context).
I also believe it to be a false overgeneralization -- for example, women
tend to get significantly stronger negative feedback for being assertive
than men do.
