Kiecolt, K. Jill; Acock, Alan C.
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v50 n3 p709-17 Aug 1988
Using 1972-1986 General Social Surveys data, investigated effect of family structure during adolescence on adult gender-role attitudes. Found family structure to selectively affect gender-role attitudes. Adults who grew up in single-parent household with divorced mother favored greater political power for women. Adults from intact and nonintact families held similar views concerning traditional gender-role behavior. (Author/NB)
