Sex Roles, Vol. 37, Nos. 9/10, 1997 The Effect of Men's Breadwinner Status on Their Changing Gender Beliefs Jiping Zuo 1 St. Cloud State University I use longitudinal data from a national sample of married men with a panel design to examine men's changing beliefs about gender over a twelve-year period and the impact of men's breadwinner status on men's change in beliefs. The majority of the sample are white (including Hispanic origin), with 3. 7% African Americans and 1.2% other racial~ethnic groups. The data indicate a positive move of men toward egalitarianism over time with the younger men homing more egalitarian beliefs. Nevertheless, although that men tend to approve women's sharing of the provider role, some still maintain that homework primarily belongs to women and want to make more money than their spouses. The present study has found that the men with lower breadwinner status are more likely to hoM egalitarian beliefs. One of the major contributions of sociology in masculinity study in the past two decades is the advancement of the notion of social construction of gender. Instead of seeing gender as being innate or fixed, sociologists view it as an accomplishment achieved through interactional processes in
