Durkin, Kevin
Communication Research: An International Quarterly, v11 n3 p341-62 Jul 1984
Investigated how children (ages 4 to 9) perceive stereotypes in television programs. Found that they use their existing knowledge of traditional sex roles to account for activities both witnessed and presupposed. Concludes that children make informed judgments about television sex roles by referring to their developing scripts of social life. (PD)
