Siegfried, William D.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v8 n1 p73-82 Jan 1982
To determine effectiveness of instructions designed to reduce sex discrimination in employment interviews, students were asked to rate resumes for a male and a female applicant under different instructional conditions. Results suggested that: legal warnings may bias ratings in favor of male applicants; and specifying job requirements reduces discrimination. (Author/MJL)
