A cross -cultural study of gender stereotyping and the self -concept: Comparing Egyptian and *American womenSherine Ramzy
This study examined cross-cultural differences in self-concept among female university students Americans—one group and Egyptians—two groups. Participants either attended an American university in Egypt or an Egyptian university. The Tennessee Self-Concept Scale and the PRF Andro Scale were administered to 150 participants. Significant differences were found between the three groups of women for their total self-concept. However, no significant differences among sub-components of the self—personal, family, academic/work, identity and satisfaction—suggesting that women across the two studied cultures have more similarities than differences. The two-way analysis of variance for total self-concept yielded significance. Cultural diversity had influence on how American and Egyptian women view their overall self; however gender stereotyping did not seem to carry that same effect on women's self-concept. Because women in traditional developing nations are still being treated as the second sex and are dictated culturally defined traditional roles that diminish their status in society, effects of gender stereotyping should be further studied. Hence, this study recommended adding training programs and workshops in Egyptian universities on self-acceptance, self-worth and self-esteem to help improve the psychological well-being of those women.
