Authoritarian Versus Non-Authoritarian Attitudes Toward Working Women

Auther : Abdel-Moniem Mohamoud

This study investigates the attitudes of men toward working women. Little attention has so far been paid to this topic, in spite of men’s influence as coworkers, husbands and fathers on the decision of women to work or not. It was hypothesized that non-authoritarian would have more positive attitudes toward women working than authoritarian. To test this hypothesis, 134 university graduates, aged between 25 and 45, were divided into two groups according to their scores on an authoritarian questionnaire. They were then given a questionnaire devised by the author to investigate their attitudes toward working women. It was found that the non-authoritarian had significantly higher scores than the authoritarian. First order factor analysis revealed 13 factors for non-authoritarian and 15 for authoritarian. However, a comparison between the two factorial matrixes showed that the first factor in both matrixes was identical, and there were 5 coefficients of similarity between 5 factors in both matrixes. The results question the suitability of factor analysis as a method to study attitude structure.
