The hypothesis was tested that differences in maternal sex-typed behavior manifested by employment outside the home and by advanced educational attainment would be related to the sex-typed characteristics of daughters. Participants were 43 female undergraduates. The amount the mother had worked was positively related to the daughter’s masculine personality characteristics, her plans for attending graduate school, plans for working after marriage, and negatively related to some feminine personality characteristics. These relationships did not depend on the amount of identification. The mother’s educational attainment was not related to any of the daughter’s characteristics.
