Typical and Optimal Aging in Women and Men: Is There a Double Standard?
Canetto, Silvia Sara; And Others
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v40 n3 p187-207 1995
Examined gender stereotypes of typical and optimal mentally healthy aging. Respondents--young adults (n=232) and their older adult relatives/acquaintances (n=233)--reported more gender stereotypes than age stereotypes. Perceptions of typical aging varied with certain factors. Findings suggest a double standard of aging for typical but not for optimal aging. (RJM)
