Men's Friendships, Women's Friendships and the Alleged Inferiority of the Latter.
Wright, Paul H.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n1 p1-20 Jan 1982
Research using a model for studying same-sex friendships has indicated differences between men's and women's friendships consistent with traditional sex roles and socialization patterns. However, the differences are small and diminish as strength/duration of friendship increases. There is no evidence that women's friendships are inferior to those of men. (Author/MJL)
