The Evaluation of Feminine Professional Competence as a Function of Level of Accomplishment.
Panek, Paul E.; And Others
This study extended those of Goldberg (1968) and Pheterson, Kiesler, and Goldberg (1971). College students (57 females and 39 males) were given booklets containing articles from fields of traditional male, female, and neutral sexual association for evaluation. Authors of the articles were portrayed as either males or females, and as either students (attempting to accomplish) or holders of advanced degrees (accomplished). The main effect of traditional sexual association of the field and interaction between level-of-accomplishment and association of the field were significant. Female authors were evaluated more positively in female fields than in male fields, while male authors in female fields were evaluated more positively than males in male fields, by subjects of both sexes. In addition, contrary to the findings of Pheterson et al. (1971), the work of females attempting-to-accomplish were evaluated more favorably than females who have accomplished. (Author)
