journal abstract

Scores on the Masculinity (M) and Femininity scales of the Personal Attributes Questionnaire were compared in male and female high school students, college students, parents of elementary school children, and parents of college students. Significant age trends occurred only for males on M. Scores on the Attitudes Toward Women Scale suggested that females were more liberal than males and students more liberal than parents of college students. The two sets of results are explained in terms of the differential sex-role expectations and life experiences of males and females. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
