An Exploratory Study of Early Childhood Teachers' Attitudes toward Gender Roles.
Cahill, Betsy; Adams, Eve
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v36 n7-8 p517-29 Apr 1997
Explores the relationship between early childhood teachers' adult gender role beliefs and their attitudes about children's gender role behavior. Responses from 103 (mostly women) teachers expressed some openness to children exploring gender roles, and felt more comfortable with girls rather than boys in this exploration. When teachers did have limiting gender role expectations, it related to homophobia. (GR)
