Abstract:
This study examined the effects of a gender specific questionnaire on college students' attitudinal responses about rape survivors. The Attitudes About Rape Survivors Scale was used in two versions, female specific and male specific, to measure one-hundred and eighty-three college students' attitudinal responses about rape survivors. The 2 x 2 factorial research design contained two main effects, gender and gender specific language, and one interaction, gender by gender specific language. The two-way ANOVA test of the main effects and interaction yielded significant results for gender, F (1, 179) = 28.50, p ≤.001, and gender specific language, F (1, 179) = 11.08, p ≤.001. No significant results were found for the interaction of gender by gender specific language, F (1, 179) =.046, p ≤.831. Additional findings regarding directional implications for the main effects, male target rape survivor, and structure of the items within the Attitudes About Rape Survivors Scale were also found. All findings were discussed with regard to implications for future research.
