Elizabeth McClintock

Elizabeth Aura McClintock is an Associate Professor in the Sociology Department.  She studies gender in the context of romantic and sexual relationships, particularly in partner selection and in negotiated outcomes between partners.  Her research addresses how intimate relationships reflect, perpetuate, and potentially alter broad societal patterns of gender, class, age, and racial inequality.  Recent papers examine gender differences in sexual strategies in dating relationships (Biodemography and Social Biology, 2011), the gendered double standard of aging (Population and Development Review, 2009), and the trophy wife myth that pretty women marry rich men (American Sociological Review, 2014).
