Cash, Thomas F.; Ancis, Julie R.; Strachan, Melissa D.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v36 n7-8 p433-47 Apr 1997
Examines how women's body-image experiences relate to their own gender attitudes and ideologies. Responses from 122 undergraduate women reveal minimal relationships between body-image attitudes and either feminist identity or adherence to traditional gender beliefs at individual/stereotypic or societal levels. Male-female social interactions revealed stronger and more dysfunctional investments in cultural and personal appearance standards. (GR)
