Abstract

This article describes the construction of a 15-item short-form of the Scale of Egalitarian Sex Role Attitudes (SESRA-S) based on factor analysis and examines the reliability and the validity of the short-form using data from a sample of 109 men and 93 women. SESRA-S is a self-report measure of the level of egalitarian attitudes toward the roles of men and women. Its reliability coefficient was. 91, the test-retest coefficient with a four-week interval. 89, and the correlation coefficient with the full form. 94. These support the reliability of the short-form. Evidence of the construct validity was derived from the confirmation of five hypotheses regarding gender, educational attainment, women's employment status, age, and surname change after marriage. The findings of the present study provide evidence for the utility of the short-form as a satisfactory and time-efficient substitute for the SESRAfull form.
