The impact of gender-stereotypic perception of occupations on evaluations of prestige, earnings and value of society.
Northern Kentucky University
This study builds on previous research in three major ways: (1) re-examining the factor structure of the six gender-stereotypic attributes identified 20+ years ago (Cejka & Eagly, 1999), (2) systematically selecting a variety of occupations spanning social classes (i.e., traditionally blue/pink collar jobs & masculine/feminine white collar jobs), and (3) employing a unique sampling design in which participants were randomly assigned to stimuli that were randomly sampled (Wells & Windschitl, 1999; Judd, Westfall, & Kenny, 2014).
