Three Dimensions of Sexist Attitudes: Differential Relationships with Personality Variables.
Kahoe, Richard D.; Meadow, Mary Jo
This paper presents a study in which three separate factors with substantial face validity were replicated, factor analyzing 74 attitudes-toward-women items with two college samples of 159 and 195 subjects. Three sex-role attitudes scales based on the factor analyses were related to 10 personality variables. The relationsips supported the psychological healthiness of liberal attitudes toward women. The study focused on significant differences between correlations of the sexism scales with personality variables. Two-way interactions between sexism variables were tested by relating the variables in pairs to the personality measures. There were few significant interactions, but the results in general supported the need to consider attitudes toward women as multi-dimensional. (Author)
