In this study, a preliminary Women Workplace Culture Questionnaire (WWC) was validated on new data sets (n = 446, including nine subgroups; response rate 72–97%) in terms of descriptive statistics, factor analysis, corrected item–total correlations, internal consistency reliability, and Pearson's correlation. Four factors called perceived burdens on women (coefficient α = .87), personally experienced burdens (coefficient α = .84) , sexual harassment (coefficient α = .80), and inadequate organizational support (coefficient α = .71) were acceptable. Normative data are presented. The standardized indices correlated significantly with self-reported ill health, psychological stress, and work satisfaction. The presented WWC (24 items) so far seems to be an adequate reliable and valid instrument, which can be used in research and evaluations of women's work environment with regard to psychosocial hindrances and microinequalities of importance for women's health.
