Measuring Sex Stereotypes
A Multination Study



August 1990 | 384 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
An exploration of contemporary sex stereotypes and their prevalence in different cultures is provided in this volume.

The authors surpass previous studies in three areas: their data covers thirty nations; they test both children and adults and they examine their findings from three theoretical perspectives - affective meanings, ego states and psychological needs. They also examine the practical implications of pan-cultural stereotypes. Since the publication of the original 1982 edition, new adult data from Singapore and Portugal have also been included.
