Leaper, Campbell; Robnett, Rachael D. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2011
Robin Lakoff proposed that women are more likely than men to use tentative speech forms (e.g., hedges, qualifiers/disclaimers, tag questions, intensifiers). Based on conflicting results from research testing Lakoff's claims, a meta-analysis of studies testing gender differences in tentative language was conducted. The sample included 29 studies…

Men reported greater self-silencing than women on the Silencing the Self Scale; however, women reported higher…

Vishnevsky, Tanya; Cann, Arnie; Calhoun, Lawrence G.; Tedeschi, Richard G.; Demakis, George J. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2010
A meta-analysis was conducted to examine the direction and magnitude of gender differences in self-reported posttraumatic growth. Results from 70 studies (N = 16,076) revealed a small to moderate gender difference (g = 0.27, 95% CI = 0.21 -0.32), with women reporting more posttraumatic growth than men. Moderator analyses were then conducted to…

Ryan, Michelle K.; Haslam, S. Alexander; Kulich, Clara – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2010
Recent archival and experimental research has revealed that women are more likely than men to be appointed to leadership positions when an organization is in crisis. As a result, women often confront a "glass cliff" in which their position as leader is precarious. Our first archival study examined the 2005 UK general election and found…

Lenton, Alison P.; Bruder, Martin; Sedikides, Constantine – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2009
This meta-analytic review examined the efficacy of interventions aimed at reducing automatic gender stereotypes. Such interventions included attentional distraction, salience of within-category heterogeneity, and stereotype suppression. A small but significant main effect (g = 0.32) suggests that these interventions are successful but that their…

White, Jacquelyn W. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2009
This article argues that adolescent dating violence should be considered within a social ecological model that embeds the individual within the context of adolescent friendships and romantic relationships, as well as family and other social institutions that shape a young person's sense of self. Two additions to the model are recommended. First,…

Greer, Tawanda M.; Laseter, Adrian; Asiamah, David – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2009
The present study tested gender as a moderator of the relationship between race-related stress and mental health symptoms among African American adults. Because African American women are exposed to stressors associated with race and gender, we hypothesized that African American women would have higher levels of race-related stress and more severe…

Schmitt, Michael T.; Wirth, James H. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2009
Numerous studies have found that, compared to women, men express higher levels of social dominance orientation (SDO), an individual difference variable reflecting support for unequal, hierarchical relationships between groups. Recent research suggests that the often-observed gender difference in SDO results from processes related to gender group…

This article provides a short introduction to standard considerations in the formal study of wages and illustrates the use of multiple regression and resampling simulation approaches in a case study of faculty salaries at one university. Multiple regression is especially beneficial where it provides information on strength of association, specific…

Elacqua, Tina C.; Beehr, Terry A.; Hansen, Curtiss P.; Webster, Jennica – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2009
The glass ceiling refers to the difficulty of women trying to be promoted into the top management levels. The present study examined managers' potential explanations, implicit or explicit, for why women rarely reach the top hierarchical levels in their own organization. Among 685 managers at a large Midwestern insurance company, a model was…

Sun, Chyng; Bridges, Ana; Wosnitzer, Robert; Scharrer, Erica; Liberman, Rachael – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2008
Pornography is a lucrative business. Increasingly, women have participated in both its production, direction, and consumption. This study investigated how the content in popular pornographic videos created by female directors differs from that of their male counterparts. We conducted a quantitative analysis of 122 randomly selected scenes from 44…

Bookwala, Jamila; Boyar, Jenny – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2008
We examined gender differences in the association between body mass index (BMI) and psychological well-being. Regression analysis involving 3,251 adults indicated that gender moderated the BMI-psychological well-being link. In follow-up analyses, higher BMI predicted lower psychological well-being only among women. When participants were…

Phelan, Julie E.; Moss-Racusin, Corinne A.; Rudman, Laurie A. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2008
We present evidence that shifting hiring criteria reflects backlash toward agentic ("masterful") women (Rudman, 1998). Participants (N=428) evaluated male or female agentic or communal managerial applicants on dimensions of competence, social skills, and hireability. Consistent with past research, agentic women were perceived as highly competent…

Zalta, Alyson K.; Chambless, Dianne L. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2008
A multivariate model was developed to examine the relative contributions of mastery, stress, interpretive bias, and coping to sex differences in worry. Rumination was incorporated as a second outcome variable to test the specificity of these associations. Participants included two samples of undergraduates totaling 302 men and 379 women. A path…

Lindgren, Kristen P.; Parkhill, Michele R.; George, William H.; Hendershot, Christian S. – Psychology of Women Quarterly, 2008
Men appear to interpret people's behaviors more sexually than do women. This finding, which has been replicated in scores of studies using a variety of methodological approaches, has been linked to important social concerns, including sexual assault and sexual harassment. This article provides a critical review of the published literature on…
