Children's Causal Attributions for Performance on Sex-Stereotypic Tasks.
Bond, Lynne A.; Deming, Sara
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n12 p1197-1208 Dec 1982
In two experiments, third, fifth, and eleventh graders attributed success to effort more frequently on a "sex inappropriate" task than on a "sex appropriate" task. Overriding sex-of-actor biases emerged in explanations for failures, suggesting that failures were treated as anticipated outcomes for females. (Author/MJL)
