Women's Work, Men's Work and the Sense of Control.
Ross, Catherine E.; Wright, Marilyn P.
Work and Occupations: An International Sociological Journal, v25 n3 p333-55 Aug 1998
Telephone survey of 2,592 people found that their sense of personal control was positively affected by nonroutine, autonomous, fulfilling, or nonisolated work. Women's low personal control was attributed to overrepresentation in part-time work and homemaking. Homemakers reported more autonomy than did paid workers; female paid workers performed less isolated work than male paid workers. (SK)
