Occupation and Impressions: Stereotypes of Males and Females in Three Professions.
Decker, Wayne H.
Social Behavior and Personality, v14 n1 p69-75 1986
Stereotypes of persons in three predominantly sex-typed professions and of "average persons" were studied. Males were perceived as more autonomous and effective but less acceptable than females only when target occupation was unspecified and data of both subject-sexes were combined. Females were generally rated equal or superior to males. Ways of countering negative stereotypes are discussed. (Author/KS)
