Aging and Attractiveness: Marriage Makes a Difference.
Giesen, Carol Boellhoff
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v29 n2 p83-94 1989
Examined women's agreement with double standard of aging. Women (N=32) aged 28 to 63 shared definitions of attractiveness, femininity, and sexual appeal. Findings showed attractiveness was defined primarily by appearance, femininity by behavior and inferred traits, and sexual appeal by both. Found age differences among married women, but few age differences among singles. (Author/ABL)
