Beyond the Superwoman Syndrome: Work Satisfaction and Family Functioning among Working-Class, Mexican American Women.
Herrera, Ruth S.; DelCampo, Robert L.
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v17 n1 p49-60 Feb 1995
A survey investigated the interaction of sex role attitudes, division of household and child care responsibilities, role strain, work satisfaction, and family functioning among 87 working-class Mexican American women in dual-earner families with children. Respondents did not subscribe to the "superwoman" myth but, rather, endorsed an expansion of husbands' housework and child care roles. (Author/SV)
