Witkowski, Kristine M.; Leicht, Kevin T.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v22 n1 p48-72 Feb 1995
Analysis of data from 12,686 young adult workers demonstrated that men's wages benefited more from marriage, women's were constrained by dual marital/parental roles; detrimental effects of female-dominated occupations were more pronounced for single or childless married persons; married women experience social closure, sorting them into segregated occupations; and men's earnings are reduced by an increased number of women in their occupation.
