Abstract

The currentresearch tests a model for understanding how benevolent sexism undermines,whereas hostile sexism promotes, social change. Study 1 (N =99) and Study 2 (N = 92) demonstrate that exposing women tobenevolent sexism decreases their engagement in collective action, whereasexposure to hostile sexism increases it. Both effects were mediated bygender-specific system justification and perceived advantages of being a woman.In Study 2, positive and negative affect also mediated these relationships.Results from Studies 3 and 4 (N = 68 and N =37) support the causal chain described in the mediational models tested inStudies 1 and 2. Manipulations that increased gender-specific systemjustification (Study 3) and perceived advantages of being a woman (Study 4)reduced intentions to participate in collective action.
