Attitudes toward Women Managers-Comparison of Attitudes of Male and Female Managers in India

Comparison of Attitudes of Male and Female Managers in India Kaval Gulhati This study builds on the literature of sex-role socialisation to explore, for the first time, attitudes toward women managers in India. A survey was administered to a sample of Indian men and women managers drawn from such sex-typed professions as health, education and social welfare. The data were analysed using the Women as Managers Scale (WAMS), developed by researchers in the United States to measure bias. Indian women managers received higher scores on the scale, indicating more favourable attitudes and less bias than did men. Gender was found to be the most significant variable in determining attitudes toward women managers, confirming the findings of previous studies in other countries.
