The Relationship of Women's Career Commitment to Their Attitudes Toward Their Children's Sex Role Socialization, to Their Attitudes on Spousal Roles, and to Marital Adjustment.
Krain, Mark; Lower, Deborah
The measurement of career commitment involved use of an instrument which assessed the value to a woman of a career in terms of her desire to remain at work (1) despite objections of her husband (marriage context career commitment) and (2) despite problems her working might pose for her children (children context career commitment). Marriage context career commitment correlated negatively with children context career commitment, and the two types of commitment correlated differentially with other variables. Children context career commitment is positively related to women's having egalitarian attitudes toward children's sex roles and to their encouragement of egalitarian sex role behavior for their children. Career commitment (both types) is not related to the perceived probability of children's egalitarian sex role behavior. Marriage context career commitment is negatively related to women's holding egalitarin attitudes toward sex roles, encouraging egalitarian sex role behavior. Marriage context career commitment is positively related to women's having traditional attitudes toward spousal roles while children context career commitment is negatively related to this. Marriage context career commitment is not related to marital adjustment, but children context career commitment is negatively related to it. (Author)
