Gendered Readings of a Traditional "Feminist" Folktale by Sixth-Grade Boys and Girls.
Rice, Peggy S.
Journal of Literacy Research, v32 n2 p211-36 Jun 2000
Examines the bias in 6th-grade boys' and girls' memories of a "feminist" folktale. Finds girls averaged twice as many nontraditional inclusions as the boys. Finds the boys and girls did not alter an overall dualistic perception of maleness/femaleness; however, there was some movement away from stereotypical gender positioning for the girls. (RS)
