McClintock’s research primarily focuses on gender and inequality in the context of romantic and sexual relationships, particularly in partner selection and in negotiated outcomes within established relationships. In addition to studying inequality within romantic partnerships, her research also addresses how intimate relationships reflect, perpetuate, and potentially alter broader, societal patterns of gender, class, age, and racial inequality. Recent papers appear in Journal of Marriage and Family, Population and Development Review, and Biodemography and Social Biology. Her other research and publications focus on body image and weight self-concept as well as on the competing roles of marriage and same-sex friendship in men’s expression of masculinity.
