College Students' Visions of Power and Possibility as Moderated by Gender.
Lips, Hilary M.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v24 n1 p39-43 Mar 2000
Examined how college students imagined their possible powerful selves and absorbed cultural messages about power and gender. Students were asked to describe their possible selves as powerful persons and various types of leaders. Women were less optimistic than men about holding positions of power and were more likely to anticipate problems associated with being political leaders. (SM)
