A unique exploration of contemporary sex stereotypes and the degree to which they prevail 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.After describing a surprising array of pan-cultural sex stereotypes, Williams and Best examine the practical implications of such stereotypes. This revised edition includes a summary of findings from additional studies - conducted since the publication of the original edition in 1982 - using the authors' sex stereotypes assessment methods. New adult sex stereotype data from Singapore and Portugal have also been included, together with comparison variable data for these two countries.
