Sex Differences in Conformity: Status and Gender Role Interpretations.
Eagly, Alice H.; Chrvala, Carole
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v10 n3 p203-20 Sep 1986
Examines status and gender role explanations of the tendency for women to conform more than men in group pressure settings. Analysis of age and sex differences revealed that older females were significantly more conforming than older males when under surveillance and when subjects formed impressions of group members' likability. Among younger subjects, there were no sex differences. (Author/KS)
