Traustadottir, Rannveig
Journal of Family Issues, v12 n2 p211-28 Jun 1991
Based on qualitative study of families of children with disabilities, examined role of gender in caring for disabled child. Found caring to be complex phenomenon with at least three meanings (caring for, caring about, extended caring role). Findings suggest that responsibilities for caring are still ascribed on basis of gender. (Author/NB)
