Gender Differences in Geographical Knowledge.
Beatty, William W.; Troster, Alexander I.
Sex Roles, v16 n11-12 p565-90 Jun 1987
Among college undergraduates, males consistently outperform females on tests of geographical knowledge. That difference may be caused by the fact that women have had less active control over distances and directions traveled in their lives, and thus less interest in learning about them. This may change as women's roles in society change. (PS)
