Children's "Ideal Self"--Which Sex? Drawings from Two Mexican Subcultures.
Grossman, Beth
Mexican children from Cosomaloapan (male dominated) and Tehuantepec (female dominated) were asked to draw "the person you'd like to be." In Cosomaloapan, 96% of the females and 93% of the males drew their own sex. In Tehuantepec, 76% of the males and 71% of the females drew theirs. There were highly significant between-city differences for both male and female groups. Results were not in keeping with the model of greater percentage of self-sex drawings from the dominant sex in each city. Findings are discussed in terms of Cosomaloapan's sex role rigidity, and Tehuantepec's more fluid framework. (Author)
