What Influence Does She Have in This Town? The Perceived Influence of Women in Rural Pennsylvania Communities.
Bourke, Lisa; Luloff, A. E.
Journal of the Community Development Society, v29 n2 p237-55 1998
Community surveys in rural Pennsylvania (393 responses) investigated how residents view women in their local community. Results suggest that women are as involved as men and perceive similar characteristics as important to being influential, but their underrepresentation as leaders has resulted in perceptions that women are not very influential.
