Sex Roles: A Journal of Research is an interdisciplinary, behavioral science journal with a feminist perspective. It publishes original research reports and theoretical and review articles that illuminate the underlying processes and consequences of gender role socialisation, gendered perceptions and behaviors, and gender stereotypes. Topics include developmental, cognitive, social, and personality factors in gender role development, child rearing practices, and family organisation; social influences (e.g., media, schools, peers, community); the acquisition, maintenance, and impact of stereotypes; effects of contemporary social change (sociocultural as well as economic, legal, and political systems); gendered physical and mental health concerns; gender issues in employment and work environments; interpersonal relationships; sexual preference and identity; victimisation; and methodological issues in gender research. Authors whose papers address cultural, racial, ethnic, sexual preference, ability, and/or class diversity are encouraged to submit. The journal also publishes book reviews that address these topics.
