Gender Bias in Theoretical Perspectives: The Case of Female Socialization into Sport.
Greendorfer, Susan L.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v11 n3 p327-40 Sep 1987
Examined whether conceptual and methodological perspectives pertaining to sport might be gender-biased. Applied a social role/systems approach predictive of male sport socialization to female athletes and nonathletes, finding it inappropriate. Suggests conceptual notions pertaining to sport socialization may be more accurate portrayals of gender-appropriate behavior in sport than of actual sport role behaviors. (Author/KS)
