Abstract

This study examines the relationship between gender orientation (as measured by the Bern Sex Role Inventory) and success and between gender orientation and job satisfaction among accounting professors. Prior studies have shown that women in professions formerly dominated by men (among them public accounting) possess stereotypically masculine characteristics to a greater degree than average (Wong et al., 1985; Lemkau, 1983; Maupin & Lehman, 1994). Existence of these conditions in accounting academia would carry important implications for accounting professors, and for the profession of which they are a part. Results indicate that female accounting faculty at higher ranks are more likely to possess masculine characteristics than those at lower ranks. Job satisfaction was found to be related to gender orientation, but not to gender.
