Gender Roles and Night-Sky Watching among College Students
Kelly, William E.; McGee, Catherine M.
College Student Journal, v46 n1 p82-87 Mar 2012
The present study investigated the relationship between gender roles and night-sky watching in a sample of college students (N=161). The Bem Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI) and the Noctcaelador Inventory (NI) were used to investigate the differences between gender role groups for night-sky watching. The results supported the hypothesis that androgynous individuals would report more night-sky watching. The hypothesis that individuals with a feminine gender role would score higher on night-sky watching was not supported. The results and suggestions for future research were discussed.
