Oyserman, Daphna; Swim, Janet K.
Journal of Social Issues, v57 n1 p1-14 2001
Introduces a theme issue on social stigma and stereotyping, suggesting an insider's perspective to focus attention on the stereotyped or stigmatized ingroup's responses, experiences, and beliefs and proposing that the insider's perspective affords a view of stigmatized groups as actively seeking to make sense of their social world and attain positive outcomes, not simply avoid negative outcomes.
