Abstract [en]

The present series of studies investigate possible explanations for the lack of female managers. The first study resulted in a categorisation scheme of characteristics associated with good, bad, female and male management, to a large degree pertaining to communion and agency. In a second study, student participants evaluated women more highly, but believed that women meet with more difficulties than men. Concurrently, preliminary data (n=80) from a study validating a Swedish translation of the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (ASI, Glick & Fiske, 1996) indicate that both men and women dissociate themselves from sexist ideas. Interestingly, women disagreed to a greater extent with Benevolent items than Hostile items. A suggested link between system justification and the belief in complementary gender stereotypes (e.g., Glick & Fiske, 1997, 2001) could not be confirmed. Further investigation of these aspects will take place, both in qualitative and quantitative studies, in order to understand why women do not rise to the top, while good management and female leadership both are described in many communal terms.
