Structures of the Schedules of Racist and Sexist Events: Confirmatory Factor Analyses of African American Women's Responses
DeBlaere, Cirleen; Moradi, Bonnie
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v32 n1 p83-94 Mar 2008
Use of the Schedule of Racist Events (SRE; Landrine & Klonoff, 1996) and the Schedule of Sexist Events (SSE; Klonoff & Landrine, 1995) has advanced research on experiences of perceived racism and sexism. The present study responds to calls for further investigation of the structural properties of data from these instruments and is the first study to do so using (a) responses of African American/Black women (N = 246) and (b) confirmatory factor analysis. Regarding the SRE, results supported the unidimensional structures reported by Klonoff and Landrine (1999) for SRE Lifetime, SRE Recent, and SRE Appraisal data. Regarding the SSE, results supported the two-factor structures for SSE Lifetime and SSE Appraisal data and the three-factor structure for SSE Recent data derived by Matteson and Moradi (2005). Thus, the present results support the structural stability of SRE and SSE data with African American/Black women and can inform future use of these measures with this population.
