Larson, Mary Strom
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v35 n1-2 p97-110 Jul 1996
Investigated the contribution of daytime television soap operas to the perception of the roles of single mothers. Findings reveal there is a perception that single mothers have good jobs, are well educated, are not poverty prone, have healthy babies, and have men friends who provide their children with love. The problem of adolescents and gender role socialization is discussed. (GR)
