Want to see a Feminist’s Head Explode? Study Suggests the Unattractive Women Gravitate Towards Careers

The final experiment tested the researchers’ suspicion that less attractive women would be more interested in careers because they might find it difficult to secure a partner.The 87 young women were given mocked-up newspaper articles describing the sex ratio in nearby university campuses and were asked about their views on family and career.They were also asked how attractive they believed themselves to be to men.Those women who saw themselves as being less desirable than average were highly likely to be career-orientated.Researcher Kristina Durante, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, said: ‘Does the ratio of men to women in a local population influence women’s career aspirations? Real-world archival data and a series of laboratory experiments suggest that the answer is yes.’
