Structure and Content of Gender Stereotypes: Effects of Somatic Appearance and Trait Information.
Freeman, Harvey R.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v11 n1 p59-67 Mar 1987
Male and female subjects studied photographs of females who differed in somatic appearance and read information about traits. Subjects estimated the probability that the stimulus person possessed other gender-related traits and engaged in gender-related behaviors. Results support a multiple-component construction of stereotypes, with physical appearance the most potent component. (Author/KS)
