Are Feminists Man Haters? Feminists' and Nonfeminists' Attitudes toward Men
Anderson, Kristin J.; Kanner, Melinda; Elsayegh, Nisreen
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v33 n2 p216-224 Jun 2009
Despite the popular belief that feminists dislike men, few studies have actually examined the empirical accuracy of this stereotype. The present study examined self-identified feminists' and nonfeminists' attitudes toward men. An ethnically diverse sample (N = 488) of college students responded to statements from the Ambivalence toward Men Inventory (AMI; Glick & Fiske, 1999). Contrary to popular beliefs, feminists reported lower levels of hostility toward men than did nonfeminists. The persistence of the myth of the man-hating feminist is explored.
