Summary

One hundred unmarried female students, 18 to 21 years old, took the California F Scale and the Hewer-Neubeck Marriage and Employment Questionnaire. Authoritarianism was found significantly related to acceptance or rejection of many specific reasons offered for a woman's working or not working after marriage for subjects themselves, their perceived motives of other women, and value normative statements. For personal motives, rejection of items depicting an equalitarian role for women was positively related to authoritarianism, as was acceptance of a traditional conception of woman's role. Items which indicated nurturant attitudes or striving for self-fulfillment were unrelated to authoritarianism. Authoritarian women were more rejecting than accepting of their own working. Other women were seen as more willing to work and also willing to work for equalitarian and self-fulfillment motives not personally endorsed by high authoritarianism subjects. Authoritarianism was associated with seeing oneself more in line with cultural imperatives than other women are, although there were indications of a lack of ego-syntonicity in some motives of authoritarian subjects.
