Women Preparing for Traditionally Male Professions: Physical and Psychological Symptoms Associated with Work and Home Stress.
Gerdes, Eugenia Proctor
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v32 n11-12 p787-807 Jun 1995
Studied gender and career track influences on susceptibility to stressors. Results from 397 undergraduates show women studying for careers in traditional male professions were more susceptible to stressors than men with the same goals. Chronic job tension and home life events were stronger predictors of certain symptoms for these women than for women preparing for traditionally female professions. (GR)
