Sexualized Images Undermine Women’s Success In Academia

As of 2017, women are outnumbering men across all levels of higher education, yet men still dominate academic environments, where on average, they make more money and are more likely to hold higher positions of power. But how could this be? A new study published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology aimed to identify a potential cause of this gap: sexualized professional climates.

Context and climate matter for professional outcomes. Perceptions of workplace climate as sexist or tolerant of sexual harassment are associated with decreased job satisfactionpoorer job outcomes and higher exit intentions and actual withdrawal from the workplace, particularly among women.

This study provides evidence that sexualizing otherwise nonsexual professional environments increases people’s perceptions of that environment as sexist and ultimately undermines women’s (and, to some extent, also men’s) desire to pursue and succeed in these careers.

Goes Deeper A new study just published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior investigated fantasies about and experiences with cuckolding in a large and diverse sample of gay-identified men. The study was picked up by the media, with CNN reporting “Cuckolding could be positive for some couples”, and FoxNews and other conservative media mocking CNN for doing it. Another fun tidbit about this study is that one of its authors is someone who most listeners are probably familiar with but is not a scientist and has never published an academic
