Young Children's Evaluations of Exclusion in Gender-Stereotypic Peer Contexts.
Theimer, Christine E.; Killen, Melanie; Stangor, Charles
Developmental Psychology, v37 n1 p18-27 Jan 2001
Investigated how 50 preschoolers evaluated the appropriateness of excluding boys and girls from two types of activities and two types of future roles across different exclusion contexts. Found that straightforward gender-based exclusion was judged wrong. Decisions were justified on the basis of moral reasons. However, children used both moral and social conventional reasoning to evaluate multifaceted situations. (Author/KB)
