Abstract Subjects were 200 managerial and nonmanagerial American women and men (112 female, 88 male) who were tested for degree of sex role conflict (SRC) and various work-related attitudes and outcomes. Both gender and hierarchical differences were analyzed. Results showed that SRC was related to low job involvement for managerial women but not for nonmanagerial women or for men at any rank; it was negatively correlated with professional commitment for both female and male managers but not for nonmanagerial subjects of either sex. Overall, women scored higher than men in SRC but were not significantly different in levels of job involvement, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, professional commitment, or propensity to leave the organization. Managerial women scored higher in SRC than nonmanagerial women.
