Sex Discrimination in Simulated Employment Contexts: A Meta-analytic Investigation.
Davison, Heather K.; Burke, Michael J.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v56 n2 p225-48 Apr 2000
The hypothesis that applicant and rater sex, job sex-type, and job-relevant information would affect discrimination against applicants was tested in simulations. Both sexes received lower ratings when applying for opposite-sex-typed jobs. Both male and female raters rated male applicants higher. Differences between male and female ratings decreased as job-relevant information increased. (SK)
