In the current study we used both quantitative and qualitative methods in a sample of sixth-grade girls in order to investigate the relationship between girls' concerns with weight and their adherence to gender-stereotyped roles as assessed by their scripts for an imagined date. Girls who had previous dating experience did not differ from those who did not in their adherence to gender stereotypes of dating. As hypothesized, girls who endorsed a gender-stereotyped perspective of dating in their scripts expressed significantly greater concern with their weight than did girls who endorsed a non-gender-stereotyped perspective of dating. The findings highlight the influence of holding a stereotyped view of gender roles on dissatisfaction with body weight during adolescence.
