VAN DEN BERG, Henriette S  e  VAN ZYL, Ebben S. A cross-cultural comparison of the stress experienced by high-level career women. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.3, pp.17-21. ISSN 2071-0763.

This study examines differences in the experience of work-related stress and of exposure to work-related stressors among South African career women of different ethnic groups. A sample of 732 women working in administrative, semi-professional, professional and managerial positions was involved. Analyses of covariance found significant differences in the level of stress reported by the different groups, with black women reporting the highest level of stress. Stressors pertaining to a lack of infrastructure and resources in the environment significantly contributed to the stress experienced by black women. All four groups reported discontent with their remuneration and fringe benefits.

Palavras-chave : South African career women; occupational stress; job-related stressors; conservation-of-resources theory; criterion group design.
