Male Attitudes Toward Women's Rights as a Function of Their Level of Self-Esteem.
Miller, Thomas W.
The purpose of this research was to study the effects of men's attitudes toward the principles of the women's liberation movement as a function of their own self-esteem. The author hypothesizes that males found to have high levels of self esteem will have favorable and positive attitudes toward women's liberation while men with low levels of self esteem will oppose the principles of the women's rights movement. Male subjects for the study were chosen from five different college settings; a sixth sample of a non-college population was also included in the study. Subjects were first administered the Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale, followed by the Women's Liberation Questionnaire (WLQ). Findings from the study in general support the author's hypothesis; however, males who attend large, state, and non-religiously affiliated institutions were more approving of the principles of the women's liberation movement than those who attend small, religiously affiliated or private schools. The non-college sample compared most closely with the former group. References are included. (Author/SES)
