Age and Gender Differences in Body Attitudes: A Comparison of Young and Elderly Adults.
Franzoi, Stephen L.; Koehler, Virginia
International Journal of Aging & Human Development, v47 n1 p1-10 1998
The attitudes of young and elderly adults toward their own bodies were investigated; subjects (N=274) rated 35 aspects of their bodies. Elderly subjects expressed less positive attitudes toward bodily functioning and attractiveness. Some sex differences and areas in which age differences are reversed are discussed. (Author/EMK)
