NOTES

▲ CHAPTER 1. Children and Gender
1.
Recent examples include Newsweek, May 28, 1990, with a cover story titled "Guns and Dolls: Scientists Explore the Differences between Girls and Boys," and Time, January 20, 1992, with a cover that asks, "Why Are Men and Women Different: It Isn't Just Upbringing. New Studies Show They Are Born That Way."
2.
Key insights into the socially constructed nature of gender can be found in R. W. Connell, Gender and Power; Anne Fausto-Sterling, Myths of Gender: Biological Theories about Women and Men; Suzanne J. Kessler and Wendy McKenna, Gender: An Ethnomethodological Approach; and Candace West and Don H. Zimmerman, "Doing Gender."
3.
Nearly every textbook or anthology on the sociology of sex and gender contains a section on "gender socialization," which is often the only place where children appear.
4.
This point is nicely developed by Beverly T. Purrington in Effects of Children on Their Parents: Parents' Perceptions." As Anthony Giddens observes: "The unfolding of childhood is not time elapsing just for the child; it is time elapsing for its parental figures, and for all other members of society; the socialization involved is not simply that of the child, but of the parents and others with whom the child is in contact, and whose conduct is influenced by the child just as the latter's is by theirs in the continuity of interaction" ( Central Problems in Social Theory, p. 130).
