"Why Girls Are Good": A Constructivist View.
Ullian, Dora
Sex Roles, v11 n3-4 p241-56 Aug 1984
Female traits of caretaking, nurturance, sociability, and empathy are not simply internalizations of societal norms and values. Rather, they result from early forms of thought that shape sex-role concepts in predictable ways. Their development can be traced to the young child's belief that "anatomy is destiny." (Author/KH)
