Prof. Gurung collaborates with alumni and undergrad for recent publication
“Power and provocativeness: The effects of subtle changes in clothing on perceptions of working women,” is now published in the Journal of Social Psychology. The publication is the work of Prof. Regan Gurung (Psychology, Human Development) and UW-Green Bay graduates Michaella Brikner ’17 and Vincenzio Badalamenti ’16, as well as current student Elizabeth Punke. “The current study investigates the effects of subtle changes in professional women’s dress on women’s perceptions of power and competence. We replicate and extend Howlett, Pine, Cahill, Orakcioglu, and Fletcher’s (2015) research showing that women in provocative clothing are rated as less competent,” the abstract states. Read it here.
