The effects of leader gender and equality message framing on men's and women's mobilisation towards workplace gender equality https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:35441 women's issue, which limits men's (non-target's) involvement in the movement, or a meritocratic non-issue that exists due to women's (target's) tendency to pursue less intensive careers. In contrast to such work focusing on women's experiences as targets of discrimination or men's role in preserving inequality, we propose a solidarity-based approach that positions men and women as agents of change. This approach relies on two processes: leadership processes - particularly leadership as a form of influence based on shared identities among leaders and followers (e.g., their gender group); and political solidarity as a way to mobilise the silent majority (men) to work as allies beside a minority (women) and embrace equality as a common cause for both groups. In two experiments (Ns=338, 336) we studied how leader gender and message framing affect men's and women's support for equality by contrasting a solidarity-based framing of gender equality as a common cause for men and women, with a women's issue frame (Experiment 1) or a meritocratic frame (Experiment 2). The statement was attributed to a male or female leader (Experiments 1-2) or, additionally, to a government agency (Experiment 1). Women reported higher sense of common cause (Experiment 2) and collective action intentions than men (Experiments 1-2), and higher intentions under common cause compared to meritocracy frames (Experiment 2). Interestingly, male leaders invoked higher sense of common cause and collective action intentions for both men and women regardless of framing (Experiment 2). Irrespective of leader gender however, as predicted common cause framing boosted perceived leader prototypicality, legitimacy, and influence across the board (Experiments 1-2). Yet this was qualified by women (compared to men) rating leaders as more legitimate and influential under common cause compared to meritocracy framing (Experiment 2). Women's reactions to equality messages, and the intersection of leadership and solidarity towards equality are discussed.]]> Wed 20 Jan 2021 17:22:05 AEDT ]]> Promoting gender equality at work: a potential role for trade union action https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:14757 Wed 11 Apr 2018 14:05:52 AEST ]]> Labour market deregulation and gender equity in the Australian workforce: compatible or incompatible? https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:11736 Wed 11 Apr 2018 09:57:28 AEST ]]> On the necessity for gender equality: Anna Doyle Wheeler and William Thompson and 'Equality in Community' https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:28379 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:36:05 AEDT ]]> Gender equity: women in academia in Fiji https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:30331 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:31:51 AEDT ]]> An agency theoretical approach to corporate board diversity https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:26743 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:24:48 AEDT ]]> Gender equality in education and economic growth in selected Southern African countries https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:26901 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:23:37 AEDT ]]> Mobilising men and women in support of workplace gender equality: does leader gender matter? https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:36919 Mon 26 Jul 2021 11:36:56 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32322 Mon 23 Sep 2019 12:54:28 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32318 Mon 23 Sep 2019 12:48:22 AEST ]]> Special issue on father-inclusive practice https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32315 Mon 23 Sep 2019 12:42:36 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32319 Mon 23 Sep 2019 12:02:40 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Symposium II: Theory, Measurement, Policy and Practice https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32329 Mon 23 Sep 2019 11:19:43 AEST ]]> Fathers at home https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32331 Mon 23 Sep 2019 10:59:01 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32311 Mon 23 Sep 2019 10:43:12 AEST ]]> A special issue on father-inclusive practice https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32308 Mon 23 Sep 2019 10:29:43 AEST ]]> Fatherhood Research Bulletin https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32309 Mon 23 Sep 2019 10:20:10 AEST ]]> Intimate, imperial, intergenerational: settler women's mobilities and gender politics in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:32421 Fri 01 Jun 2018 15:46:15 AEST ]]>
