The Disappearance of Giftedness in Girls: An Intervention Strategy.
Olshen, Sylvia R.; Matthews, Dona J.
Roeper Review, v9 n4 p251-54 May 1987
Self-concept scores of gifted 10- to 18-year-old females (N=14) improved after they participated in sessions stimulating awareness of gender-related social and personal concerns (including sexism, possible lifestyle choices, and gender stereotyping in work roles), suggesting that a positive self-concept influences positive achievement and development to full potential.
