Is Barbie To Blame?: Reconsidering How Children Learn Gender.
MacNaughton, Glenda
Australian Journal of Early Childhood, v21 n4 p18-24 Nov 1996
Examines current concerns of early childhood practitioners regarding the effects of popular toys such as Barbie dolls and Power Rangers on children's understanding of gender. Critiques traditional theories of sex role socialization and argues that feminist post-structuralist views of gender are useful in deciding if and how popular toys may be used in early childhood gender equity programs.
