Sex Differences in Judgments of Male and Female Role Stereotypes.
Getz, Sandra K.; Herman, Jeanne B.
This study tests whether or not there are sex differences in judgments of the success of various male and female lifestyles, and if so, what differential standards are applied to males and females. The most interesting result of this study is that college men and women use the same standards to judge the success of male lifestyles but different standards to judge the success of female lifestyles. Results indicate that men judge divorced females with high status careers as more successful than do women. Men and women do not differ in their success ratings of divorced males holding high status jobs, but women judge other women as successful only if they are successful maritally as well as occupationally. Numerous data charts are included. (Author/PC)
