Title
The Effect of Egalitarian and Complementarian Gender Role Attitudes on Career Aspirations in Evangelical Female Undergraduate College Students
Abstract

This research investigated the effect of two opposite religious gender role attitudes (Complementarianism and Egalitarianism) on the career aspirations of female college students at an Evangelical Christian university in the Midwest. A survey measuring Egalitarianism / Complementarianism gender role ideology and career aspirations was distributed to a random sample of 400 students of which 271 participants responded. Results indicated a statistically significant relationship exists between gender role attitude and career goals. Results also showed that an Egalitarian gender role attitude has a positive effect on the level to which a female aspires.
