Martin, Carol Lynn
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v33 n11-12 p727-51 Dec 1995
Assessed adults' stereotypes of gender-traditional and nontraditional children by analyzing undergraduates' ratings of the desirability of 25 personality traits, and their classifying children as "tomboys" or "sissies" based on 26 traits and behaviors. Results show extensive adult stereotyping of young children. Tomboys were stereotyped similar to traditional boys but "sissies" were not stereotyped similar to traditional girls. (GR)
