A Survey of Cognitive Styles in Maryland Ninth Graders: IV: Views of Women's Roles.
Entwisle, Doris R.; Greenberger, Ellen
The main focus of this paper is upon the acquisition of a few specific attitudes: Whether women should work; what kinds of jobs women should hold; and whether women are intellectually curious. Views of women's work role held by ninth-grade boys and girls in Maryland are sampled with respondents drawn from seven residential areas chosen to typify segments of the U.S. population. Boys are consistently more conservative than girls. Although in general those of higher IQ hold liberal views, middle class boys of high IQ are the least liberal. Black children are less opposed than white children to having women working outside the home, but are just as conservative about having women holding men's jobs as other groups. The greatest differences between girls' and boys' views are found for middle class whites. (Author)
