Abstract

The following research study analyses the relationship between types of sexism and intergroup strategies. Specifically, we explored 1) the dimensions attributed by the male in-group to different female subtypes, as well as 2) the relationship between types of sexism and strategies of intergroup differentiation and in-group favouritism. 180 men, with a mean age of 37.67 (DT= 12.1), filled out one of the three versions (traditional woman, independent woman and sexy woman) of a questionnaire. This included measures of features and attributes to evaluate subjects' perception of the woman stimulus, and to undertake ingroup-outgroup comparisons, together with measures of sexism. Overall results show that the independent woman type is both the most favoured and the most discriminated in subjects' assignation of positive and negative features. Moreover, hostile and benevolent sexism toward the independent woman type are related, on the one hand, to a tendency to favour the in-group in the comparison and, on the other, to distancing oneself from this woman type who for subjects carries a negative image. These results are discussed within the framework of Social Identity Theory.
