SILVA, Julia Caciano da; VALENTINI, Felipe  and  FREITAS, Clarissa Pinto Pizarro de. Gender conformity norms: a systematic review of validity evidence. Psicol. Am. Lat. [online]. 2020, n.34, pp.171-182. ISSN 1870-350X.

The aim of this study was to conduct a systematic review to verify the validity evidence of the internal structure of the Conformity to Feminine Norms Inventory and the Conformity to Masculine Norms Inventory. The results of this review allow us to verify the applicability of the underlying structure, as well as the relationship between the items and the construct assessed in the instruments. The search was performed in PUBMED, PsycINFO and SCOPUS. The analysis of the psychometric properties reported in the publications was based on the recommendations of competent institutions in the area. Nineteen publications were included, which contained a sample composed predominantly of heterosexual college students. The publications found contain data that corroborate the validity and reliability of the instruments, however, inconsistencies are found around the most appropriate theoretical model: correlated factors or bifactor.

Keywords : gender norms; femininity; masculinity; psychometrics.
