Powlishta, Kimberly K.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v42 n3-4 p271-82 Feb 2000
Investigated the impact of target age on gender stereotyping. College and elementary students viewed photographs of men, women, boys, and girls, rating each for masculine, feminine, and neutral personality traits. Adults also rated likelihood of masculine and feminine traits in adults versus children. Target age had important implications for activation of gender stereotypes. Adults applied stereotypes most rigidly to children. (SM)
