Sex-Linked Role Behavior in Three Employment Groups.
Deutsch, Robin A.
Participants in this study were couples representing three employment groups. The first, mono-employed, consisted of couples with an employed husband and a wife who was at home full time. The dual employed group comprised an employed husband and wife, and the third group were employed husbands and wives both of whom had doctoral degrees. Participants were administered a questionnaire, including philosophical orientation and actual role behavior. Results indicated that for both measures, professional women had the lowest degree of sex-linked role behavior and housewives, the highest. Men showed less predictability with regard to philosophical orientation. Actual role behavior was consistent with the philosophical orientation of their wives. (Author)
