Correlates of Perceived Gender Discrimination For Female Versus Male Medical Technologists

Correlates of Perceived Gender Discrimination For Female Versus Male Medical Technologists This study longitudinally investigated correlates of perceived gender discrimination in a female-dominated occupation, medical technology. The sample consisted of 303 female and 101 male medical technologists (MTs), of whom 97% had a baccalaureate degree and 3% possessed a graduate-level degree. Descriptive results showed, surprisingly that female MTs perceived higher gender discrimination than male MTs. Significant gender differences in perceived antecedent–gender discrimination correlations were found. Female MTs with lower perceived extrinsic job satisfaction and organizational support were more likely to perceive greater gender discrimination than male MTs. These results suggest that perceived gender discrimination extends beyond occupational groupings and is a more widely perceived phenomenon. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

This study longitudinally investigated correlates of perceived gender discrimination in a female-dominated occupation, medical technology. The sample consisted of 303 female and 101 male medical technologists (MTs), of whom 97% had a baccalaureate degree and 3% possessed a graduate-level degree. Descriptive results showed, surprisingly that female MTs perceived higher gender discrimination than male MTs. Significant gender differences in perceived antecedent–gender discrimination correlations were found. Female MTs with lower perceived extrinsic job satisfaction and organizational support were more likely to perceive greater gender discrimination than male MTs. These results suggest that perceived gender discrimination extends beyond occupational groupings and is a more widely perceived phenomenon.
