Sex Role and Interpersonal Behavior in Task-Oriented Groups
Meeker, B. F.; Weitzel-O'Neill, P. A.
American Sociological Review, 42, 1, 91-105, Feb 77
The sociological theory that men are instrument or task specialists and that women are expressive or social specialists has been weakened by research on small groups, families and personality. This paper suggests that sex differences in task-oriented situations may be explained by status processes, men having higher status than women. (Author/JM)
