Abstract

We construct a model of sex‐role transmission from mothers to daughters using three survey years from the National Longitudinal Surveys of Labor Market Experiences of Mature Women and Young Women. We develop a series of hypotheses specifying race differences on how mothers’ sex‐role attitudes and work behavior during daughters’ adolescence influence daughter's adult work and sex‐role attitudes. The major difference between blacks and whites lies not in the relationships between attitudes and behavior within cohort, but rather in the manner in which these are transmitted across generations.
