Abstract

Themes central to sex-role socialization are traced, along with the processes by which dominance and female deference are developed. Gender differences in parent-child interactions, peer-group relations, classroom settings, children's observations of the marital dyad, and messages from television are examined. The link between sex-role socialization and the etiology and maintenance of wife abuse is discussed.
