Contrasts in U.S. and Asian Gender Role Differentiation in the Workplace

Dorfman and Howell’s (1988) reformulation of Hofstede’s (1980) masculinity/feminimty scale was used to contrast gender-role typing attitudes among Japanese, Chinese, and U.S. respondents. The data indicated a relatively higher degree of gender-role typing among the Chinese, less so for the Japanese, and the least among the U.S. sample. Notably, women were found to be less willing to accept work roles based on gender than were men in each country.
