Confronting Prejudice Press Coverage

Check out the press release for our paper recently published in Sex Roles on relationship orientation, gender, and confronting sexism.

In this study, we found that when a sexist statement was directed at a woman that women felt more competent, more self-esteem, and more empowered when they confronted than when they did not confront. There were no differences for men. Do you think we would find similar effects if a man was the target of the sexism?

Happy Thanksgiving!
