Sex-Ratios as a Basis for Occupational Evaluations: A Contemporary View.
Shaffer, David R.; And Others
Social Behavior and Personality, v14 n1 p77-83 1986
The present experiment failed to replicate a widely-cited sexist bias in people's evaluations of occupations that was originally reported by Touhey (1974). College students (N=303) did not downgrade the prestige of masculine professions or upgrade that of feminine professions when told that the proportion of other-sex (i.e., minority) practitioners was increasing. Implications of these findings are discussed. (Author/KS)
