This study develops a social psychological model to account for women's gender-typed occupational mobility. The model delineates that occupational gender composition affects women's psychological experience (experience of sex discrimination, self-efficacy, and gender role ideology), and that this psychological experience, in turn, contributes to their mobility between male-dominated and female-dominated occupations. Using the National Longitudinal Surveys (NLS) of Young Women data, the study finds that occupational gender composition affects women's report of experience of sex discrimination but not self-efficacy or gender role ideology. Self-efficacy contributes to women's gender-typed occupational mobility, but experience of sex discrimination and gender role ideology do not. The direction for future research is discussed.
