The present study examined the relationship between the acute stress of receiving a simulated microaggression, and acute and chronic physiological parameters. Prior research has shown women, minorities, and foreign-born individuals are more likely to experience these microaggressions daily compared to caucasian counterparts.Self-reported surveys were used as measures of subjective social status as well as frequency of perceived microaggressions. Female students at a male-dominated engineering school reported higher perceived microaggressions and lower SSS than male counterparts, despite college efforts towards inclusivity.
