    • Abstract:
      This study brings the literature on tokenism together with multiple theoretical lenses on the formation and social construction of men's and women's career aspirations. The study builds on comprehensive survey data from the Danish public sector. Results show that, after controlling for alternative explanations with respect to both personal life situation and differences between occupations, token status has a significantly negative effect on women's management aspirations, while it has no effect on men's aspirations to management. Furthermore, these findings are generalizable across occupational contexts. At the same time, however, analysis across occupations show that token women are mainly to be found in occupations where women have relatively high managerial aspirations. Token women are therefore characterized by aspirations to management positions, but their status as tokens minimizes these aspirations. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
