  • One Size May Not Fit All: The Need for a More Inclusive and Intersectional
           Psychological Science on Stigma
    • Abstract: Abstract In their review, Remedios and Snyder (2015) articulated how models of stigma fall short of explaining stigmatization of women of color, because they do not consider intersectionality of multiple stigmatized identities. Using the example of the intersection of race and gender, they reviewed literature on how targets of stigma detect and respond to prejudice (making prejudice attributions, the role of identity processes such as centrality), highlighting the complexity of these processes once multiple identities (namely non-prototypical categories of race and gender) are considered. In response, we provide more in depth discussion of the challenges to inclusion and intersectionality including current and traditional psychological science approaches and the perceived politicization of intersectional research, as well as the complexity of integrating multiple identities (social class, sexual orientation and gender diversity) into stigma research, including recruitment, measurement, and analysis. We offer practical suggestions in the areas of recruitment, measurement, and analysis, to facilitate more inclusive and intersectional research, given that such work would provide a more complete understanding of the experience of stigma.

  • From the Agency Line to the Picket Line: Neoliberal Ideals, Sexual
           Realities, and Arguments about Abortion in the U.S.
    • Abstract: Abstract Bay-Cheng’s (2015) paper on the Agency Line provides a much-needed articulation of how neoliberal ideals are used in the U.S. to evaluate young women’s sexuality. Our commentary extends her important work in two specific ways. First, we describe the Agency Line as it relates to the concept of hegemonic masculinity. Although young women in the U.S. are not afforded the same entitlement to sexual desire or behavioral freedom as young men, we suggest that the Agency Line is used to evaluate women’s sexuality against traditional masculine norms. Second, we explore how neoliberal ideals are used to blame women for failing to control their reproductive functioning. Arguments about access to abortion in the U.S. reveal investments in neoliberalism, although different groups apply these ideals in different ways. Those who oppose access to abortion erase, minimize, or vilify pregnant women in ways that converge with neoliberal judgments of “out of control” sexual activity. Those who support abortion rights describe their position as supporting a woman’s autonomy and control over her body and pregnancy status in accord with neoliberal values of rational choice, freedom, and self-determination. On both sides of the picket line, a focus on neoliberal ideals obscures social, economic, and relational factors that influence women’s reproductive realties. By applying the Agency Line to feminist concepts and U.S. reproductive politics, we provide additional support for Bay-Cheng’s (2015) argument about the impact of neoliberal ideals on young women’s lives.

  • Anecdotal and Essentialist Arguments for Single-Sex Educational Programs
           Discussed by Liben: a Legal Analysis
    • Abstract: Abstract This commentary responds to Liben’s (2015) “Probability Values and Human Values in Evaluating Single-Sex Education” by analyzing the values she discusses through a legal framework. As Liben correctly points out, many single-sex education programs are animated by claims regarding “hard wired” biological sex difference, and proponents tend to value personal experience and anecdote over scientific approaches to data. This commentary recognizes the contribution Liben makes in situating supporters of single-sex education within a particular historical tradition and illuminating their values. However, it argues that while gender essentialism and resulting claims regarding typical male and female tendencies may be established intellectual philosophies, they are of limited value from a practical legal perspective. Similarly, while anecdotes and personal experience have real power, they are legally insufficient to support sex-based classifications enshrined by public schools. The commentary builds on the link Liben has drawn between historical gender essentialist views surrounding women’s education and contemporary proponents of single-sex education by providing examples of how these views are currently being applied in classrooms across the U.S. It then provides a discussion of the development of sex-discrimination law, demonstrating how historical examples of gender essentialism in law were ultimately rejected by the courts. Through a discussion of the legal requirements governing single-sex education, the commentary attempts to illustrate the relevance of both evidence and gender-essentialism in legal determinations about the permissibility of single-sex education programs in the United States.

  • Faculty Member Attitudes and Behaviors Toward Male Counselors in Training:
           A Social Cognitive Career Theory Perspective
    • Abstract: Abstract The purpose of this qualitative content analysis was to describe the attitudes and behaviors of U.S. university faculty members (N = 168) who recruit, educate, and develop male students in female-dominated graduate counseling programs. Drawing on social cognitive career theory (SCCT; Lent, Brown, and Hackett 1994), we identified three factors (i.e., opportunities, barriers, supports) that potentially influence vocational persistence for U.S. male students planning to enter a female-dominated occupation. The results highlight four distinct educational experiences for male students: leader, stigmatized, invisible, and nurtured. Implications for future research and educational training are discussed.

  • Reactions Toward Men Who Have Taken Parental Leave: Does the Length of
           Parental Leave Matter?
    • Abstract: Abstract There is some evidence from research in the US that the work-related characteristics of men who take parental leave may be evaluated negatively. In 2007, Germany introduced a new law that encourages men to take parental leave by granting 2 extra months for the second parent to stay home. Since the introduction of this law, the proportion of fathers taking parental leave has increased substantially, but the majority of men take only the minimum of 2 months. We investigated how taking a parental leave affected perceptions of men who applied for a job that required high qualifications and whether a long parental leave of 12 months would lead to backlash effects. In two experimental studies, 203 students in business-related subjects (105 women, 98 men) in South-Western Germany rated vignettes of male applicants on gender role attributes (agency, communion) and work-related characteristics. The applicant took either 0, 2, or 12 months of parental leave. A parental leave resulted in higher communion and likeability ratings but did not make a difference for ratings of agency, respect, competence, or hiring probability. Contrary to our hypothesis, a long parental leave (12 months) compared with a short parental leave (2 months) did not lead to backlash toward the men. The results indicate that in Germany, a country where parental leave for fathers is encouraged, gender role attitudes have changed, and men thereby have more gender role options.

  • Expanding the Role of Gender Essentialism in the Single-Sex Education
           Debate: A Commentary on Liben
    • Abstract: Abstract In this commentary we expand on Liben’s exploration of the effects of differing gender conceptualizations – gender essentialism and gender constructivism – on the single-sex education debate within the United States. We examine these conceptualizations in the context of current behavioral and neuroscientific research, which we argue undermines an essentialist view of males and females, while supporting an expanded constructivist version of the account endorsed by Liben. We then extend Liben’s work to argue that gender essentialism has indirectly facilitated popularization of neuroscientific research used to support claims of brain-based evidence in favor of single-sex education. Finally, we develop Liben’s observations regarding the association of gender essentialism with negative attitudes towards reducing gender-differentiation, by examining the relation between gender essentialism and the folk concept of innateness. This reveals the empirical challenge to essentialist arguments that social interventions designed to reduce gender-differentiation go against nature.

    • Abstract: Abstract This commentary discusses three themes that are addressed by this collection of articles on men in female-dominated occupations: (1) the characteristics of men who cross over into female-dominated occupations; (2) how men fare in university programs where they are in the minority; and (3) the on-the-job advantages and disadvantages that accrue to men who do women’s work. Suggestions are made for additional research, and the importance of interdisciplinary approaches is emphasized.

  • Men in Female-Dominated Vocations: a Rationale for Academic Study and
           Introduction to the Special Issue
    • Abstract: Abstract This introduction to the special issue on men in female-dominated vocations provides a rationale for examining this topic. To date, this topic has garnered relatively little research attention even though work is often identified as a central aspect of men’s identity. Although millions of men perform “women’s work” in a broad range of fields, the extant database around the world focuses primarily on male nurses and teachers and tends to focus on ways to recruit and retain men in these professions. We argue that studying men in female-dominated vocations is important because it furthers our understanding of the workplace in general, as well as the ways in which men experience, understand, and navigate challenges to their masculinity. Moreover, expanding our knowledge of men in female-dominated vocations has important theoretical implications for theories addressing gender-based equality and power dynamics, the psychology of men and masculinity, and intersecting identities (or intersectionality). After a brief overview of the literature and establishing this rationale, we introduce the articles in the special issue. The majority of the papers in this special issue are based on U.S. samples, with one exception from the U.K.

           Single-Sex Education”
    • Abstract: Abstract In her commentary on single-sex instruction in the United States, Liben (2015) puts the research on gender-segregated instruction in the context of values and the larger social and political processes affecting decisions about schooling. In this paper, I elaborate on her history of the research and social issues surrounding gender and achievement. In response to her point that educational decisions involve more than empirical evidence, I describe investigations of knowledge utilization that illuminate the processes by which policymakers and practitioners make school policy decisions, and I offer guidance to social scientists who want their research to be considered in such decisions. Social science research could go beyond issues of gender-based instruction to articulate some of the processes involved in different classroom and school contexts as well as some of the ways in which pedagogy could be adapted to the needs of individual children.

  • Gender and Bullying: Application of a Three-Factor Model of Gender
    • Abstract: Abstract The Three-Factor Model (Choi, Fuqua & Newman, 2008, 2009), which consists of a feminine factor and two masculine ones, seems especially appropriate for explaining the influence of gender-stereotypic traits on bullying, since it specifically differentiates between “social masculinity”, the first masculine factor, dealing with behaviors toward others, and “personal masculinity”, the second masculine factor, tapping the personal dimension. Our study aims at examining the relation between social masculinity and bullying, the prediction being that bullying will be more strongly related to social masculinity traits of power and social dominance. The Personality Traits Questionnaire (López-Sáez, Morales & Lisbona, 2008) was administered, together with the Instrument to assess the Incidence of Involvement in Bullying/Victim Interactions at School (CAME, Rigby & Bagshaw, 2003), to 2560 native Spanish High School students from Castilla-La Mancha and Castilla-León. The appropriateness of the Three-Factor Model for the explanation of bullying was tested via regression computed separately for the boys and the girls to see which factors most predict bullying. It was found that bullies, boys as well as girls, were higher in social masculinity traits. No differences appeared in femininity between students involved in bullying and those not involved. Regarding the Three-Factor Model, the social masculinity factor did explain aggression both for boys and girls, while femininity was significant only for girls. In the final discussion some implications for educational practice are suggested.

  • Male-Male Advising Relationships in Graduate Psychology: A Diminishing
    • Abstract: Abstract In this article, we seek to advance the study of vocational gender dynamics by exploring a profession in the midst of a marked shift in gender composition – applied professional psychology. Although this field has historically been dominated by men, the ratio of men to women has drastically shifted (Levant 2011; Willyard 2011). It is within this vocational context that we examine the interplay between masculinity and applied psychological training; specifically, within the student-professional relationships formed by males in U.S. graduate psychology programs. Towards this larger goal, we present a review of existing literature. All studies included in this review are based on U.S. samples unless otherwise noted. We begin with a review of established masculine constructs, and highlight research that has examined these among men working or training within the field of mental health. Next, we present research on student-professional relationships, paying specific attention to studies on advising within applied psychology programs. With this literature review in tow, we discuss the potential advantages and disadvantages of the all-male advisory dyad; these considerations are inclusive to dual theoretical conceptualizations of masculine identity (i.e., deficit model, positivistic model). We also addresses issues that may be raised by multiple cultural identities within these relationships (e.g., race, sexual orientation) with the support of research related to intersectionality. Finally, implications for training, as well as suggestions for future research are offered. Among other conclusions, we assert that applied psychology advisors, and their graduate programs more broadly, attend to aspects of masculinity during training.

  • Types of Combined Family-to-Work Conflict and Enrichment and Subjective
           Health in Spain: A Gender Perspective
    • Abstract: Abstract Family-to-work conflict and enrichment indicate how participation in the family can influence negatively or positively participation at work, respectively. These experiences have been proved to co-occur within individuals at different levels and explain their well-being in a more nuanced way than conflict and enrichment in isolation. This study examines how Spanish women and men experience conflict and enrichment concurrently in different types and the consequences to their subjective health. First, in line with social role theory and the gendered division of household labor, we hypothesized on gender differences in the types of combined conflict and enrichment experiences. Second, incorporating theory on conservation of resources and identity, we hypothesized on the consequences of the specific types of combined conflict and enrichment to subjective health from a gender perspective. Using chi-square test on a sample of 236 women and 165 men, we confirmed that women and men differed in their types of combined conflict and enrichment experience: the beneficial (higher enrichment than conflict) and active types (similar higher conflict and enrichment) were mainly composed of women whereas the passive type (similar lower conflict and enrichment) was mainly composed of men. Using a MANOVA, we confirmed that the types of combined conflict and enrichment explained significant differences in subjective health in a similar way for women and men. Overall the findings debunk the belief that higher participation in family roles interferes with work more negatively among women, or that higher participation in family roles affect their health more negatively than men. We discuss theoretical and practical implications.

  • The Agency Line: A Neoliberal Metric for Appraising Young Women’s
    • Abstract: Abstract Young women’s sexuality traditionally has been marked along a gendered moralist continuum of sexual activity, ranging from virtuous (virgins) to licentious (sluts). However, this one-dimensional model cannot easily accommodate substantive changes in the norms that influence girls’ sexualities. Contemporary scholarship generated across the Anglophone West includes many signs that such a shift has occurred, ushered in by the cultural and ideological suffusion of neoliberalism. I enlist interdisciplinary and international evidence of neoliberalism’s influence on constructions of girls’ sexuality to argue that in the U.S., girls are now judged on their adherence not only to gendered moralist norms, but also to a neoliberal script of sexual agency. In addition to reviewing conceptual and empirical grounds for this claim, I consider the multidimensional normative field created by the intersection of this Agency Line with the long-standing Virgin-Slut Continuum. The primacy of agency within neoliberal discourse seems to legitimize women’s sexual autonomy and its subjective nature may permit them some control over their position above the Agency Line. But upon critical inspection it becomes clear that young women remain confined to a prescribed normative space that divides them from one another, compels self-blame, and predicates their worth on cultural appraisals of their sexuality.
