Inhalt: Two recently published measures of contemporaty sexist attitudes were
examined and compared with a sample of 106 Canadian college students.
Swim, Aikin, Hall, and Hunter’s (1995) Modern Sexism scale was
found to be an acceptable measure of sexist attitudes in terms of its
internal reliability and its ability to predict other gender-related political
attitudes. Although the Modern Sexism scale and the Neosexism scale
(Tougas, Brown, Beaton, & Joly, 1995) were equally good at predicting
support for the feminist movement and attitudes toward lesbians and gay
men, the Neosexism scale had better internal reliability and exhibited
stronger gender differences. Moreover, the Neosexism scale was superior
at predicting value orientations relevant to modern prejudices.
