Perception of Occupational Gender-typing: Contrasting French from Maghrebi Origin’s and French from European Origin’s Viewpoints

Badiaa Bouazzaoui, Etienne Mullet


The differences in occupational gender-typing between French students of Maghrebi origin, French students of European origin, and French older adults of European origin were examined. The students of Maghrebi origin demonstrated a higher level of occupational gender-typing than the students of European origin or the older adults but the difference in gender-typing was not considerable and the linear association between mean ratings was impressive. In addition, the students of Maghrebi origin demonstrated an equivalent level of occupational gender-typing than the one found just ten years ago among French students of European origin. These results are consistent with previous findings showing that integrationism and individualism were the preferred acculturation orientations among persons of Maghrebi origin living in France.
