College Students' Perceptions of Mothers: Effects of Maternal Employment-Childrearing Pattern and Motive for Employment.
Bridges, Judith S.; Etaugh, Claire
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v32 n11-12 p735-51 Jun 1995
Obtained 460 college students' perceptions of mother's employment-child rearing patterns and employment motives. Results show that continuously employed mothers (CEMs) were perceived as less communal and less were positively evaluated. CEMs were also seen as less communal if their employment was for fulfillment rather than financial necessity. Discussions focus on students' views of normative roles and characteristics for women.
