This study used reversed sex-typed programs as an educational tool to teach preschool children about varieties of sex roles. The subjects were 85 four- and five-year-old kindergarten children, half of whom were assigned to the experimental group and half to the control group. The children's sex role stereotypes decreased after participation in reversed sex-typed programs. Girls' scores of sex role stereotypes were higher in terms of own sex and in child and adult activity but lower in terms of the opposite sex than those of boys. There were differences in the scores of sex-role stereotypes in terms of child activity and adult activity.
