An Eriksonian analysis of the impact of traditionalism and feminism on the identity formation of university-attending women was presented and four “identity strategies” were postulated: traditionalism, ambivalent semi-traditionalism, confident semi-traditionalism, and feminism. A study assessing the reliability and validity of an operationalization of the identity strategies was described and it was concluded that Erikson’s characterization of female identity formation has not been well understood in the literature, that more attention must be given to the unique situation women face in contemporary universities, and that efforts should be made to more adequately integrate theoretical and empirical work in this area.
