Sex and Psyche
Gender and Self Viewed Cross-Culturally



May 1990 | 216 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Women's and men's self-concepts in relation to physical attributes such as relative strength, and to country-specific sex stereotypes of masculinity and femininity, are examined in this volume. Using extensive data collected in fourteen countries the authors also consider sex role ideologies viewed along a continuum ranging from traditional male dominated to modern egalitarian views. They explore both pan-cultural similarities and cross-cultural differences.
