Abstract

Sexist language excludes, trivializes or diminishes either gender. Despite efforts by many

persists across many languages. Further, research has shown that men are less supportive of

toward women. We propose that broader ideologies related to the perceived legitimacy of

undergraduate participants completed measures of attitudes toward women, gender-specific

attitudes toward sexist language. There was a strong gender difference in attitudes toward

social dominance orientation. The relationship between gender and attitudes toward sexist

their place”.
