Sex Role Socialization Patterns in Selected Societies.
Safilios-Rothschild, Constantina
This document evolved because studies concerning sex role socialization patterns were available from only a limited number of societies. In addition to examining available research findings, the author develops a number of relevant hypotheses with respect to several selected societies--the United States, Russia, Greece, India, and Eastern Europe. These hypotheses are: (1) equalitarian ideologies superimposed by the state may increase the range of women's educational and occupational options but may have little effect on sex role socialization and the degree of sex stereotyping; (2) same-sex play groups that provide girls with competitive experiences as well as acceptance and prestige for winning and/or mixed-sex friendship groups that replace dating, singly or in combination, can enable girls to develop intellectually and to achieve highly without fear of loss of femininity and popularity; (3) in societies in which there are formalized institutionalized patterns of sex role socialization and sex discrimination, there is no need for informal indirect, and disguised sex discrimination.
