Structural Effects of Sex-Ratios and Power Distribution on the Survival Rates of Female Monasteries


Grätzer, Gitte; Rost, Katja (2015). Structural Effects of Sex-Ratios and Power Distribution on the Survival Rates of Female Monasteries. In: Academy of Management, Vancouver, 7 August 2015 - 11 August 2015, 1-6.

Abstract

We draw on Kanter’s Token theory to analyze the relationship between sex proportions, the distribution of power and the survival chances of 4,606 Catholic monasteries over a period of 1,483 years. We find evidence for female underachievement in token situations. Our results further indicate that females benefit from a numerically increase in regions where nuns enjoy a high autonomy. From the perspective of males, we find that a higher share of females in a region has no significant effects on the survival prospects of male monasteries.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
