The Effects of Employment and Religion on Women's Feminist Attitudes

Document Type



The effects of employment outside the home on various gender role attitudes for White female Catholics, mainline Protestants, and Evangelical Protestants were examined. The zero-order relationships between employment and various indices of feminism were quite similar for women in all three religious groups. Multivariate analysis revealed that religious variables are not significantly related to feminism among Catholic women and that employment status is not related to gender role specialization among Evangelical women.
