Gender and Serious Leisure Careers Term Paper

Excerpt from Term Paper :



The author's findings were that gender did in fact greatly influence female participation both within and beyond the serious leisure career. For example the organization's "Female Cover Rule" policy, which was based on the assumption that women were naturally good caregivers, relegated older cadets to looking after the needs of younger female cadets. This policy caused many cadets both male and female to doubt that women could generally advance within the organization's hierarchy. On the other hand in relation to outside social worlds revolving around friends and family, female cadets were able to forgo traditional roles associated with femininity, such as housecleaning and shopping, due to the demanding work schedules of their serious leisure career.
