To Be A Man: An Investigation of Masculinity Ideology and Men's Family Roles Among and Within African-American, Anglo-American, and Mexican-American Families
Unformatted Document Text:  Abstract This study examines African-American, Anglo-American, and Mexican- American attitudes toward masculinity ideology and the role of men in the family. Much research focuses on the impact various aspects of the family have on mental health outcomes and gender attitude differences amongst men and women, but little research investigates how the roles men are perceived to fulfill differ among and within racial/ethnic groups by assessing each racial/ethnic group for its specific culture and history. Comparatively, little research has been conducted on the gender role attitudes of minorities and economically disadvantaged individuals. There is not much literature on African-American men in the family and even less on Hispanic men, more specifically Mexican-American men. This study aims to fill these gaps in the literature by investigating attitudinal differences that vary across African-American, Anglo-American, and Mexican-American families in terms of attitudes towards three specific areas of masculinity: self-reliance, restrictive emotionality, and achievement status using quantitative and qualitative data from The Intersections of Family, Work, and Health Study (2004). This focus on masculinity ideology and the expected roles of men in the family will provide a broader context for understanding how to better assess attitudes towards masculinity ideology for racial/ethnic groups.

Abstract
This study examines African-American, Anglo-American, and Mexican-
American attitudes toward masculinity ideology and the role of men in the family. Much
research focuses on the impact various aspects of the family have on mental health
outcomes and gender attitude differences amongst men and women, but little research
investigates how the roles men are perceived to fulfill differ among and within
racial/ethnic groups by assessing each racial/ethnic group for its specific culture and
history. Comparatively, little research has been conducted on the gender role attitudes of
minorities and economically disadvantaged individuals. There is not much literature on
African-American men in the family and even less on Hispanic men, more specifically
Mexican-American men. This study aims to fill these gaps in the literature by
investigating attitudinal differences that vary across African-American, Anglo-American,
and Mexican-American families in terms of attitudes towards three specific areas of
masculinity: self-reliance, restrictive emotionality, and achievement status using
quantitative and qualitative data from The Intersections of Family, Work, and Health
Study (2004). This focus on masculinity ideology and the expected roles of men in the
family will provide a broader context for understanding how to better assess attitudes
towards masculinity ideology for racial/ethnic groups.
