Viki, G.T. and Abrams, D. and Hutchison, P. (2003) The “True” Romantic: Benevolent Sexism and Paternalistic Chivalry. Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, 49 (9-10). pp. 533-537. ISSN 0360-0025 .
Previous research has shown that individuals high in benevolent sexism positively evaluate women who conform to traditional gender roles (e.g., Glick, Diebold, Bailey-Warner, & Zhu, 1997). In the current study, male and female participants completed the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (Glick & Fiske, 1996) and a new measure of paternalistic chivalry, that is, attitudes that are both courteous and considerate to women but place restrictions on behavior considered appropriate for women during courtship. Consistent with our hypotheses, benevolent sexism was significantly positively related to paternalistic chivalry. Hostile sexism and participant sex were unrelated to paternalistic chivalry.
