Abstract

There appears to be a link between sex role patterns and the drinking habits of Australian female adolescents. Researchers polled 1,441 female high school students about their drinking habits, feminine and masculine characteristics, and their views of women in society. Respondents who drank more frequently tended to drink more heavily. These respondents also tended to have more progressive views on women and had a more masculine orientation.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
