Gender-Typed and Non-Gender-Typed Category Awareness in Toddlers.
Levy, Gary D.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v41 n11-12 p851-73 Dec 1999
Examined toddlers' awareness of own-sex and other-sex gender-typed and non-gender-typed toys, also measuring accuracy at labeling sex. Toddlers participated in sequential touching tasks. Results indicated that toddlers possessed significant awareness of gender-typed categories, particularly own-sex gender-typed ones. Awareness of gender-typed categories did not relate to ability to accurately label the sexes. (SM)
