Sexist Attitudes towards Reading and Writing in the Young Adult and Adult Learner Population.
Winchock, J. M.
A study examined the masculinity/femininity attitude of students toward reading and writing. Subjects, 91 young adults and adults in high school, adult high school, and community college remedial classes in the fall and spring of the 1994-1995 school year, completed the Mazurkiewicz Masculine Feminine Attitude Survey. Results indicated no significant difference between attitudes of the gender subsamples, but a significant and pronounced classification by both genders of reading and writing as mostly feminine activities.
