A study of 2,489 men and 1,070 women who work in Midwestern factories suggests that women's reactions to work are formed in ways that contradict traditional gender role interpretations of the relationship of women to paid work. There are gender differences in the formation of work attitudes that are consistent with the feminist strand of the gender model. (Author/JOW)
