Raag, Tarja
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v41 n11-12 p809-31 Dec 1999
Two studies calculated the amount of time boys and girls spent playing with toy dishes and tools, examining whether this varied as a function of children's perceptions of social expectations of gender, awareness of gender stereotypes, and situational constraints. Results indicated that situational and perceived social constraints influenced children's gender-related toy choices and amount of time playing. (SM)
