    Welcome to the Men's Club: Homosociality and the Maintenance of Hegemonic Masculinity.Sharon R. Bird - 1996 - Gender and Society 10 (2):120-132.
    This study focuses on multiple masculinities conceptualized in terms of sociality, a concept used to refer to nonsexual interpersonal attractions. Through male homosocial heterosexual interactions, hegemonic masculinity is maintained as the norm to which men are held accountable despite individual conceptualizations of masculinity that depart from that norm. When it is understood among heterosexual men in homosocial circles that masculinity means being emotionally detached and competitive and that masculinity involves viewing women as sexual objects, their daily interactions help perpetuate a (...)

  2. Understanding the Gender Gap in Small Business Success: Urban and Rural Comparisons.Stephen G. Sapp & Sharon R. Bird - 2004 - Gender and Society 18 (1):5-28.
    The authors explore how urban versus rural community location shapes the extent to which various individual, relational, and structural factors affect the gender gap in small business success. Building on previous research on gender and small business success, gender queuing theories, and gendered organization/institution theories, they develop a place-specific theory of the gender gap in small business success. The findings, based on small business data collected in urban and rural Iowa, support queuing arguments and raise questions about the effectiveness of (...)

    Building a Better Term Paper: Integrating Scaffolded Writing and Peer Review.Kate Padgett Walsh, Anastasia Prokos & Sharon R. Bird - 2014 - Teaching Philosophy 37 (4):481-497.
    This paper presents a method for teaching undergraduate students how to write better term papers in philosophy. The method integrates two key assignment components: scaffolding and peer review. We explain these components and how they can be effectively combined within a single term paper assignment. We then present the results of our multi-year research study on the integrated method. Professor observations, quantitative measures, and qualitative feedback indicate that student writing improves when philosophy term paper assignments are designed to generate multiple (...)

    Seeing Isn’T Always Believing: Gender, Academic STEM, and Women Scientists’ Perceptions of Career Opportunities.Laura A. Rhoton & Sharon R. Bird - 2021 - Gender and Society 35 (3):422-448.
    Studies about women’s underrepresentation in the U.S. science, technology, engineering, and mathematics academic workforce have flourished in the past decade. Much of this research focuses on institutionalized gender barriers and implicit biases, consistent with theorizing about how work organizations disproportionately benefit men, white people, and other systemically advantaged groups. But to what extent do faculty most likely disadvantaged by systematic inequities actually perceive “barriers” to equity in the context of their own work lives? What might the repercussions associated with variation (...)
