Presentation Title

Student Presenter(s) and Advisor

Kayla Huber, Lake Forest CollegeFollow

Location

Library First Floor

Abstract

Neosexism is a covert form of prejudice arising from tension between one's gender egalitarian values and lingering hostility toward women. Neosexist beliefs are characterized by support of the equality between the sexes, while at the same time disapproving of measures intended to reduce inequalities between men and women. Because neosexism is often measured in undergraduate samples, a scale relevant to the experiences of college students is needed. This presentation discusses the reliability and validity of this newly constructed scale, as well as its relation to gender egalitarian beliefs, feminist ideology, social desirability, and an existing scale of neosexism.
