Abstract

A review of sex-role scales in the psychological and sociological literature indicated a need for an up-to-date scale focusing on normative conceptions of appropriate male and female behavior, or sex-role orientation (SRO). The authors developed a 36-item Likert-type scale to measure SRO; the scale appears to be reliable and valid. For female undergraduates, several potential correlates of SRO were investigated: mother's education, employment, and attitudinal influence on the subject, and subject's carrer plans.
