Sex Stereotypes and Attitudes to Science among Eleven-Year-Old Children.
Kelly, Alison; Smail, Barbara
British Journal of Educational Psychology, v56 pt2 p158-68 Jun 1986
Attitude, achievement, and sex stereotyping tests administered to 11-year-olds reveal boys are more sex stereotyped; able and middle-class girls are less sex stereotyped; feminine self-image is linked to low achievement and masculine self-image to high achievement; and children endorsing sex stereotypes show less interest in science associated with opposite sex.
