1. Check, James Victor Patrick. The hostility toward women scale.

Degree: Psychology, 2014, University of Manitoba

Over the course of six studies, a 30-item trait measure of hostility toward women was developed and validated. The Hostility Toward Women Scale is balanced against response acquiescence, has a KR 20 reliability of over .80, and a one week, test-retest reliability over .83. In three studies, the scale was found to consistently predict a number of self-report measures of rape-related attitudes, motivations, and behavior (including men's reports that they had forced women into sex acts in the past and that they would do so in the future). In two studies, the scale predicted laboratory-assessed aggressive motivations and behavior toward both women and men, although the strength of this relationship was only moderate. Thus, the scale did not demonstrate discriminate validity on the behavioral measure, in that it did not correlate exclusively with aggression against women. However, the scale did demonstrate incremental validity in that it predicted both the self-report and the behavioral criterion variables better than a measure of general hostility (the Speilberger Trait Anger Scale). Finally, the scale was relatively uncontaminated by social desirability. Advisors/Committee Members: Malamuth,Neil (Psychology) (supervisor), Penrod,Stephen (University of Wisconsin, Madison), Lind,John (Psychology), Barnes,Gord (Psychology), McKenzie,Brad (Psychology) (examiningcommittee).
