A Research Note On Male Chauvinism and Mexican Americans Academic Article uri icon


  • Mexican American and White American men's responses to six items assessing attitudes and behaviors consistent with male chauvinism were compared. The items were selected from a larger set of items constituting subscales of the Marital Satisfaction Inventory-Revised (MSI-R; Snyder, 1997). On five of the six items, no significant differential endorsement occurred. Most men from each ethnic group showed signs of both male chauvinism and egalitarianism. On only one item did the two ethnic groups differ. Specifically, Mexican American men were more likely to acknowledge they have considered having an extramarital affair than were White American men. Implications of these findings are discussed.
