Butcher, Janice E.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v20 n9-10 p575-95 May 1989
Investigates development of sex role orientation among adolescent girls, and explores its relationship with sports participation, self-esteem, and age at menarche. Concludes that relationship of sex role orientation with sports participation and self-esteem was not an interactive one, but was reflective of individual differences beginning in late childhood. Also finds age at menarche did not affect sex role orientation. (MW)
