Miller, Jessica L.; Levy, Gary D.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v35 n1-2 p111-22 Jul 1996
Compares gender role conflict in 145 female athletes and nonathletes; issues of masculinity, femininity, and self-concept; and influence due to parent's previous sports participation. Athletes, overall, had more positive self-concepts and had athletically inclined parents. Both participants' body image self-concept and parental sports participation were significantly and inversely related to their amount of gender role conflict. (GR)
