He's Skilled, She's Lucky: A Meta-analysis of Observers' Attributions for Women's and Men's Successes and Failures.
Swim, Janet K.; Sanna, Lawrence J.
Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, v22 n5 p507-19 May 1996
This meta-analysis builds on past qualitative reviews examining different attributions that observers give for other women's and men's successes and failures. Results suggest the greatest support for the argument that differences in expectations for women's and men's performances on masculine tasks influence the selection of stable or unstable causes. Suggestions for pursuing new perspectives on the impact of gender on attribution processes are discussed. (KW)
