The Lady Spaceman: Children's Perceptions of Sex-Stereotyped Occupations.
Rosenthal, Doreen A.; Chapman, Diane C.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n9 p959-65 Sep 1982
Children from single-sex and coeducational schools were asked to name male and female occupants of traditionally sex-linked roles. Children's use of linguistic markers (e.g. lady doctor) was associated with labeling of female occupants of traditionally male roles and male occupants of traditionally female roles, indicating that language reflects children's sex role perceptions.
