Television, Sex Roles and Children: A Developmental Social Psychological Account.
Intended for students in the social sciences, this book assembles and evaluates the main findings of recent work on television and sex role acquisition, points out gaps and limitations in present inquiry, and sketches a framework around which future research might usefully address some of the remaining questions. The seven chapter topics are as follows: (1) sex roles and television; (2) the sex role content of television; (3) theories of sex role acquisition; (4) the more you watch, the worse it gets? (5) the more you watch, the more you see? (6) children's reactions to counterstereotyped sex role themes in television; and (7) television, sex roles, and children: towards a developmental social psychological theory. (HTH)
