Métiers, caractéristiques et valeurs sociales attribues a la masculinité et a la féminité

Abstract : The aim of this paper is to study, on a population of students of technical universities, the representation of masculinity and femininity, and assignments made for these representations in terms of social value and jobs. We observe, on the one hand, the characteristics associated with femininity, characteristics that are generally oriented to emotional support, and on the other hand the characteristics of masculinity that have to do with power and aggression. In terms of social value, characteristics associated with femininity are considered more desirable than socially useful, while the characteristics associated to masculinity are assessed at the same time useful and socially desirable. Finally, the attribution of jobs to gender characteristics obtained in previous stages, confirm the link between male professions and characteristics of masculinity and female professions and femininity characteristics.
