The Effect of Proper Name and Appearance Changes on Children's Reasoning about Gender Constancy.
Beal, Carole R.; Lockhart, Maria E.
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v12 n2 p195-205 Jun 1989
Two studies assessed the way in which changes in appearance and sex-typed names affected the performance of 124 preschool, second-, and fourth-grade children on a gender constancy task. Results suggest that children who lack an understanding of gender constancy can be misled by changes in appearance and name cues. (RJC)
