Gender and Computers. II. The Interactive Effects of Knowledge and Constancy on Gender-Stereotyped Attitudes.
Newman, Leonard S.; And Others
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n5-6 p325-51 Sep 1995
Examines, via computer-use attitudes, the influence of gender stereotypes on the motivation of gender-constant children in mastering gender roles. Results from 206 children confirm that attitudes towards computer use would be less positive only for 5- to 9-year-old gender-constant girls who also had rich gender stereotypes and that these gender differences can develop via self-socialization.
