Urberg, Kathryn A.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n6 p659-68 Jun 1982
Research on sex role concepts among young children found that: 1) the overlap children saw between male and female characteristics increased with age; 2) girls were less sex-typed than boys; 3) the realization that sex remains constant was associated with decreased sex typing; and 4) adults were seen in less sex-typed terms than peers.
