Abstract: The study is focused on examining the attitude of workers towards female managers. It is aimed at mainly finding out whether unfavorable attitude towards female managers exists among workers in spite of the efforts being taken to ensure females‟ equality in Ethiopia. A sample of 85 workers from five different organizations (three governmental organizations and two non-governmental organizations) was used in the study. The attitude of workers was measured using the widely used attitude measurement scale, Woman As Managers Scale (WAMS). The results of the data analysis showed workers hold unfavorable attitude towards female managers. Further, gender was found to be significantly affecting the attitude of workers, among the four demographic variables (age, gender, marital status and education level) used in the study. It was identified from the study that, the male workers hold significantly less favorable attitude towards female mangers than the female workers. Finally, suggestions and recommendations are forwarded for different groups in the study including, female mangers, workers, management bodies in organizations, and the concerned parties in the country for ensuring the equality of females.
