Raskin, Pamela A.; Israel, Allen C.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v7 n11 p1067-77 Nov 1981
In each of two experiments employing a 2 X 2 X 2 design, girls and boys observed a live male or female model display of appropriate (to the child's sex) or inappropriate behavior. Results indicated an interaction between sex of child and appropriateness. Boys were found to imitate opposite sex behavior less frequently than girls. (Author/GC)
