This article examines the relationship between masculinity, status, and subordination in the workplace, supported by research that asserts men are more susceptible to loss of status in the workplace than women. Two studies were conducted, in which researchers examined both men and women working as subordinates in gender-atypical workplaces. While the feminine status of female subordinates did not appear to be impacted by the situation, men had a perceived loss of masculinity when serving in a position subordinate to a gender atypical leader. The authors’ research seemed well-conducted and unbiased. Both Brescoll and Ulhmann have published a considerable number of other peer-reviewed articles on the topic of gender bias, and they appear to be regular contributors to the field. The article is quite current, and presents up to date research regarding real-life gender bias in the workplace and its impact on men, specifically. (This article was found in Science Direct.)
