GUERRA, Valeschka M. et al. Ambivalence inventory towards men: brazilian adaptation and relation to gender. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2004, vol.6, n.2, pp. 47-61. ISSN 1516-3687.

Sexist attitudes are an important construct to understand the interpersonal relation established on adaily basis. The lack of information regarding this subject has motivated the current research, which aimed to adapt the Ambivalence Inventory towards Men to the Brazilian context and, also, to verifyi gender differences in sexist attitudes toward men. The sample was formed by 205 university students, mostly females (51%), with a mean age of 20.8 years old (DP = 3.62). They answered the Ambivalence Inventory towards Men (AIM) and socio-demographic questions. The results confirmed the measure as being of a bi-factorial nature, represented by the hostile (Alpha = .80) and benevolent (Alpha = .69) factors. As was theoretically expected, there were significant differences found in the hostile and benevolent sexism depending on the participant's gender, a variable that proved important in the analysis of the results of both factors.
