Sex Stereotype Impacts on Competence Ratings by Children.
Cann, Arnie; Garnett, Alethea K.
Sex Roles, v11 n3-4 p333-43 Aug 1984
Female and male children, 67 to 114 months of age, rated perceived relative competence of male and female stimulus persons who were depicted as engaging in sex-stereotyped professions. Results suggest that sex-role stereotypes are transmitted to children quite early in life and with remarkable efficiency and significant impact. (Author/KH)
