A Developmental Study of Destereotyping and Androgynous Activity Preferences of Tomboys, Nontomboys, and Males.
Plumb, Pat; Cowan, Gloria
Sex Roles, v10 n9-10 p703-12 May 1984
Male and female high school students and adults (n=210) completed a questionnaire seeking preference responses to 12 male and 12 female traditional activities. Boys' activities were more destereotyped than girls'--but by females, not males. The unique finding was that self-described tomboys do not substitute boys' activities for girls'. (KH)
