Psychology of Online Gender Bias

A psychology study by Professor Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleauges finds that men are less likely to believe research on gender bias relative to women, and they are more likely to leave sexist comments as a result.

“This finding is consistent with other work suggesting that women are more likely than men to perceive sexism, in part because they are more likely to experience it. Similarly, men may be unlikely to acknowledge gender bias in order to maintain their own privileged position in the social hierarchy.”
