dc.description.abstract Two samples were selected to compare the femininity of domestic workers and prospective workers, one group of 108 domestic workers and one group of 97 prospective workers. Both completed the Gough Scale of Femininity as well as a prepared interview schedule. Analysis of the data was carried out by using the Mann-Whitney U test and the Kruskal-Wallis One-Way Analysis of Variance. Results showed a significant difference in the femininity scores. The domestic workers were significantly more feminine than both the prospective workers as a group and the sub-group of prospective workers not willing to do domestic work. Further analysis revealed that femininity did not distinguish particular groups of prospective workers when questions about situational factors, interpersonal relations, and personal values were asked. It is recommended that further research be conducted particularly with different occupational groups and in various areas of the country. en_US
