ABSTRACT
Selective single-sex colleges provide a more favorable environment than comparable coeducational institutions for influencing white, middle-class, academically capable under-graduates of both sexes—but particularly women—to disregard conventional occupational prescriptions based on gender. Sexually segregated academic settings are thus especially instrumental in reducing male-female disparities in career ambition, and presumably, achievement.
