STICERD Psychology and Economics Seminar


Masculinity Norms and Labour Market Outcomes

Heather Sarsons (University of British Columbia)

Friday 11 November 2022 12:30 - 13:30

Many of our seminars and public events this year will continue as in person or as hybrid (online and in person) events. Please check our website listings and Twitter feed @STICERD_LSE for updates.

Unless otherwise specified, in-person seminars are open to the public.

Those unable to join the seminars in-person are welcome to participate via zoom if the event is hybrid.

About this event

We measure gender norms facing men and women and the relative strength of those norms. We find that while gender norms regarding acceptable behavior for women have progressed, norms for men are relatively homogenous across both time and space. We then begin to examine the implications for this stagnation on women's empowerment. Given the low observed levels of correlation between views of acceptable behavior for women and behavior for men, efforts focused on solely empowering women may fail to achieve gains as men resist taking on tasks proscribed by masculine gender norms.

STICERD Psychology and Economics seminars are held on Tuesdays in term time at different times and in various locations. Please see details on the individual listing.

Seminar organisers: Dr Kristóf Madarász
