Gender, the Perception of Aggression, and the Overestimation of Gender Bias.
Stewart-Williams, Steve
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v46 n5-6 p177-89 Mar 2002
Investigated how gender of the aggressor, target, and observer would influence perception and evaluation of aggression. New Zealand college students read vignettes describing aggressive acts. Overall, they rated women's aggression as more acceptable than men's aggression. Men considered aggression more acceptable, because they considered the act less aggressive. Participants overestimated how biased others were toward members of their own gender. (SM)
