ORGAMBIDEZ-RAMOS, Alejandro et al. Paternalistic chivalry scale: factor structure and correlates with the ambivalent sexism. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.3, pp. 333-340. ISSN 1677-0471.

The ambivalent sexism of men expressed a desire to take care of women, protect them and worship them. These attitudes courteous and considered in relation to women are defined as paternalistic chivalry. This study aims to present evidence metrics adaptation to the Portuguese population scale paternalistic chivalry through confirmatory factor analyzes and relations between ambivalent sexism and paternalistic chivalry. The results confirmed that the two-factor model is more appropriate than the one-dimensional model of the original scale. Regarding the relationship between ambivalent sexism and paternalistic chivalry, participants with high levels of paternalistic chivalry (chivalrous behavior, heterosexual intimacy) showed high levels of benevolent sexism: prefer relationships in which the man possesses the power.

Keywords : paternalistic chivalry; scale; confirmatory scale.
