The Social Psychological Double Bind of the Competent Women.
Pines, Ayala; Solomon, Trudy
Male and female subjects were shown one of two videotapes depicting a competent woman planning either to pursue her career or stay at home with her family, with or without also introducing her as a patient experiencing emotional difficulties in a 2 x 2 x 2 factorial design. Results indicated that female subjects perceived the stimulus person more favorably when opting for career rather than family, while male subjects showed the opposite pattern of preference. However, all subjects, regardless of sex, were more rejecting of her when labeled patient. Results are discussed in terms of sex role stereotypes and mental health stereotypes of women. (Author)
