The Science and Politics of Comparing Women and Men.
Eagly, Alice H.
American Psychologist, v50 n3 p145-58 Mar 1995
Considers claims from sex-comparative research that sex-related differences are small, unusually unstable across studies, very often artifactual, and inconsistent with the content of gender stereotypes. The article contends that feminism created a political climate that has led to research that inaccurately minimizes psychological gender differences. (GR)
