dc.description.abstractThis study explored applicant attribution-reaction theory (AART) to examine women’s reactions to a selection system. Comparisons in reactions between men and women were evaluated based on intentions to reapply (withdrawal). Participants were given negative feedback about their performance in two conditions. The first condition, feedback was provided in a “threatening” or masculine domain while in the second condition feedback was provided in an “identity safe” or feminine domain. Results indicated little support for threat condition, and demonstrated mixed support for the role of gender on women’s withdrawal. Marginal support was found for differences in attributions between men and women towards their performance. A partial mediator (self-perceptions) and moderators (gender centrality, discrimination beliefs, stereotype threat) were investigated. Gender centrality and stereotype threat were informing variables, and were most relevant for females compared to males. In sum, the salience of gender appeared impact women’s impressions of a selection procedure.
