Aims and Scope: Sex Roles

Sex Roles: A Journal of Research is an interdisciplinary, behavioral science journal with a feminist perspective. It publishes original research reports and review articles that illuminate the underlying processes and consequences of gender role socialization, gendered perceptions and behaviors, and gender stereotypes. Topics of articles might include body image, violence against women, or intimate partner violence, gender role socialization; social influences (e.g., media, schools, peers, community) on stereotypes; 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 orientation and identity; or methodological issues in gender research. Research done in the United States as well as other countries is welcomed. The journal also publishes book reviews that address gender-related topics.
