Developmental Psychology, v34 n5 p892-901 Sep 1998
Examined levels of self-reported "voice" (authentic self expression) with various persons among high school students. Found no gender differences nor evidence that voice declines in female adolescents. Perceived support for voice predicted level of voice. Feminine girls reported lower levels of voice than androgynous girls in public relational contexts. Lower levels of voice were associated with more negative self-worth. (Author)
