Parents' Gender-Stereotyped Perceptions of Newborns: The Eye of the Beholder Revisited.
Karraker, Katherine Hildebrandt; And Others
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n9-10 p687-701 Nov 1995
Assessed parental gender-stereotyped perceptions of their newborn infant within a group of 40, mostly Caucasian, pairs of parents. Findings show stereotyped descriptions (that is, finer features, less strong, more delicate, and so on) were used when comparing newborn girls with boys. These perceptions persisted across a one-week time interval. Fathers did not show greater stereotyping perceptions than mothers. (GR)
