September 6, 2016 Gender Role Attributes And Stereotypes: Three Components of Gender-Role Attributes  Gender role ideologies have three interrelated components:  Cognitive o Example of Gender-role stereotypes  Affective o Example of Gender-based prejudice or sexism  Behavioral o Example of Sex Discrimination Affective Component: Sexism Types of sexism:  Sexism refers to one’s attitude or feeling toward people based on their sex o Traditional vs. Modern sexism: blatant disregard compared to subtler devaluing Complexity of Sexism  Ambivalent sexism inventory (Glick & Fiske) o Focuses on:  Hostile sexism: Idea that women should be subservient to men  Scale examples  Most women interpret innocent remarks or acts as being sexist  Women are too easily offended  Women seek to gain power by getting control over men  Benevolent sexism: Idea that women have special niceness and purity  Scale examples  Many women have quality of purity that few men possess  Women should be cherished and protected by men  Women, compared to men, tend to have a superior moral sensibility What’s so bad about benevolent sexism? Isn’t it a positive thing?  Well… it perpetuates the message that women need help and protection Is all sexism geared toward women?  No, but there has been less research on sexism toward men  Ambivalence toward men scale o Hostile sexism items:  Men will always fight for greater control in society  Most men are really like children o Benevolent sexism  Even if both work, the woman should take care of the man at home.  Every woman ought to have a man she adores. Behavioral Component: Sex Discrimination Sex Discrimination  Refers to the differential treatment of individuals based on their sex  Both men and women can be victims of sex discrimination o More likely when individual is unique in a given category o More likely when group to which person belong is incongruent with the person’s role o Examples: Being the only man working at a preschool; being the only woman on a construction site The example of Ann Hopkins  Price Waterhouse vs. Hopkins: Supreme Court case in 1989 o Established that gender stereotyping is actionable as sex discrimination o Research and testimony from Dr. Susan Fiske played a role in the decision  Worked at an accounting firm, and was well and above everyone who was getting promoted. She however, wasn’t being promoted  Being judged with her appearance, whether she wore make up, the way she walked  Would that have been said if she was a man?  Evaluations: needs a c “course in charm school” o Finding generally in favor of Ann Hopkins  Relatively clear cut case  What about situation that are not a straightforward?  For example, … o Let’s say you’re in a job that incongruent with gender-role stereotypes (man as a daycare teacher) o You have noticed that your co-workers and boss make certain statements about men’s lack of nurturing skills (potential sexism) o You have also noticed that other teacher have gotten promoted before you, despite your seniority
