Token Men and Women: A Note on the Salience of Sex and Occupation among Professionals and Semiprofessionals.
Macke, Anne Statham
Sociology of Work and Occupations, v8 n1 p25-38 Feb 1981
Data from 525 professionals and semiprofessionals were used to demonstrate that one's sex is a more important factor than occupational competencies for persons in opposite-sex-dominated occupations. The findings suggest that opposite-sex colleagues tend to ignore competence in lieu of one's sex. (Author/SK)
