ABSTRACT
Observer's sexism and woman's behavior have shown their influence on the way people judge the latter when she is physically assaulted by her partner. In order to find out how the attribution of blame to the female victim of intimate partner violence is affected by the interaction between those two types of factors, 120 participants were exposed to experimental vignettes after their levels of benevolent and hostile sexism were assessed. Results showed that benevolent sexists blamed the victim more when she was perceived as violating gender stereotypes and, on the contrary, they almost exonerated her when they felt she behaved according to those stereotypes. That was the case only when hostile sexism levels were low. These and other results are discussed in the context of Ambivalent Sexism Theory and of transgressed gender norms.
