The Effect of Gender-Typed Clothing on Children's Social Judgments.
Albers, Susan M.
Child Study Journal, v28 n2 p137-159 1998
Investigated the effect of gender-typed clothing on 5- to 10-year-old children's social judgments and perceptions of their peers. Found that children preferred same-sex peers dressed neutrally and stereotypically. Perceptions of preferred play activities were congruent with gender label of the target's clothing, and responses varied by age and sex of the participant. (JPB)
