female's experiences and to identify factors which possibly contribute
to the differential divorce statistics for males and females.
The present experiment examined children's memory for stereotypic
and non-stereotypic sex role content in their reading material.
Twenty-four male and twenty-four female fifth grade subjects read

In a test situation, subjects were asked to associate...
