Perception of the Occupational Opportunity Structure and Socialization to Achievement as Related to Sex and Race.
Turner, Barbara F.
This study investigated the relationship of race and sex to college students' perceptions of occupational discrimination against blacks and against women. Blacks perceived more discrimination against black people than did whites. Black females perceived more discrimination against women than did either black males or white males. White females, however, perceived less discrimination against women than did either black males or white males. The results are interpreted in terms of the differential socialization for achievement by sex reported by blacks and whites. (Author)
