The Attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale: A Validation Study.
Elmore, Patricia B.; And Others
The 120 resolutions of the 1970 national convention platform of the National Organization for Women were paraphrased to form items for the nine subscales of the Attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale. Subjects were 61 introductory women's studies students and 44 introductory psychology students. The attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale was given to both groups on the first day of class and at the end of the course three months later. For the precourse administration of the Attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale women's studies students responded with a more liberal feminist position than introductory psychology students and women students responded with a more liberal feminist position than men. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficients were computed to determine the test-retest reliability of subscale scores and total score from the precourse and postcourse administrations of the scale to the introductory psychology students. The observed correlation coefficients for all subscale scores and the total score were significantly different than zero. The students' subscale scores and total score on the Attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale were submitted to a three-factor analysis of variance. The two independent groups factors were student sex and course type. The repeated measure factor was precourse-postcourse administration of the scale. (Author)
