Abstract
Suggests that the amicus curiae brief filed by the American Psychological Association (APA) in the case of Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins has done unnecessary damage both to the standing of gender role research and possibly to that of women seeking redress for discriminatory employment practices through the courts. By filing the brief and then allowing the publication of G. V. Barrett and S. B. Morris's (see record 1993-31731-001) criticisms, the APA has implicitly legitimized the view that sexual stereotyping is a rare phenomenon.
