Potkay, Charles R.; Potkay, Catherine E.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v10 n1-2 p119-28 Jan 1984
Identification ratings of 20 comic strip characters replicated a prediction that male characters would elicit greater identification, even though previous research showed that female characters are seen in an equivalent or more favorable light than male characters. Significant interaction findings also affirmed a great degree of same sex identification. (Author/ML)
