Sex Roles, v15 n11-12 p655-66 Dec 1986
A test for gender discrimination in response to familiar labels was developed and given to 17- to 42-month-old children. There were no sex differences in performance, but among the youngest children, more boys than girls were unable to perform the discrimination task. The tests measure the ability of children to gender-label. (KH)
