Sexism and Beautyism in Women's Evaluations of Peer Performance.
Cash, Thomas F.; Trimer, Claire A.
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v10 n1-2 p87-98 Jan 1984
Investigated independent and interactive effects of physical attractiveness (PA), sex, and task sex-typing on performance evaluations by 216 college women. Found that the halo effect ("beauty is talent") of PA operated when subjects evaluated both sexes, with the exception of ratings of attractive women in out-of-role ("masculine") performances.
