Recall of Sex Role Appropriate and Inappropriate Models in Children's Songs.
Britain, Susan D.; Coker, Marcia
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n8 p931-34 Aug 1982
After listening to songs with male dominant/female subordinant, female dominant/male subordinant, and neutral lyrics, children recalled more content when the dominant song character was of the child's sex. Boys preferred male to female characters, while girls expressed no preferences. Boys and girls generally wanted to be like the subordinant characters. (Author/MJL)
