Abstract: The present study examined third grade students' (N = 52) social and psychological occupational gender stereotypes in relation to their mothers' work patterns and attitudes toward women in a rural context. The results indicated that rural children not only aspire to and expect to hold gender-traditional jobs (psychological dimension), but they also recognize that certain occupations are typically filled by women or men (social dimension). Specifically, males reported more traditional occupational gender stereotypes for both themselves (psychological dimension) and others (social dimension), and overall, children perceived more traditional occupational gender stereotypes for themselves (psychological dimension) than others (social dimension). The students' social and psychological occupational gender stereotypes were not found to be related to the traditionality of their mothers employment nor to the traditionality of their mothers attitudes concerning the roles of women. Implications for education and future research are discussed.
