GENDER BIAS IN THE INTERPRETATION OF AMBIGUOUS PROVOCATION SITUATIONS
Abstract:Children were read five stories in which a same-sex peer caused an act of instrumental aggression, but the harmdoer's intent was unclear. Responses to follow-up questions were coded in terms of whether male or female pronouns were used to describe the harmdoer. Results suggest that there may be a gender bias in the interpretation of ambiguous provocation situations.
