Attitudes to the female sex role and sex-typing of physical activities

Attitudes to the female sex role and sex-typing of physical activities

International Journal of Sport Psychology 18(1): 19-29

This study investigated sex-typing of physical activities by 168 male and 123 female sixth form students in the UK. The effects of sex, athletic participation, sex role attitudes (measured by the Attitudes Toward Women Scale), masculinity and femininity (measured using the Bem Sex-Role Inventory) on sex typing were also examined. The findings indicated that traditional notions of the suitability of particular sports for males and females are still present.
