Abstract [en]

In this study we investigated the relations between gender roles, siblings and sexism. We wanted to know if boys who spent more time with their sisters were less sexist than those who did not. Another question we asked was if girls who identified with their traditional gender roles were more sexist than those who did not. We sampled 127 high school students in the ages of 15 to 19. The results showed that time spent with sisters among boys, did not significantly correlate with sexism. However boys were more sexist than girls. Girls who identified with their traditional gender roles were less sexist than those who did not. Another important finding was that boys not identifying with the feminine gender role were more sexist than those who did. In conclusion, Contact with sisters did not have a relation to boys being sexist. However, gender and gender roles did. Unexpected findings included the importance of the feminine gender role. Where not identifying with feminine gender role traits for boys showed higher tendencies for sexism. Whereas girls who identified with the feminine traits showed lower tendencies for sexism.

Abstract [sv]

I denna studie undersökte vi relationen mellan könsroller, syskon och sexism. Vi ville veta om pojkar som spenderade mer tid med sina systrar var mindre sexistiska än dem som inte gjorde det. En annan fråga vi undersökte var om flickor som identifierade sig med sin traditionella könsroll var mer sexistiska än dem som inte gjorde det. Vårt urval bestod av 127 gymnasieelever i åldrarna 15 till 19 år. Resultaten visade att tid spenderad med systrar inte var signifikant korrelerat med sexism bland pojkar. Däremot var pojkar mer sexistiska än flickor. Flickor som identifierade sig med sin traditionella könsroll var mindre sexistiska än de som inte gjorde det. En annan viktig upptäckt var att pojkar som inte identifierade sig med den feminina könsrollen var mer sexistiska än de som gjorde det. Sammanfattningsvis, kontakt med systrar hade ingen relation till pojkars sexism. Däremot, hade kön och könsroller det. Oväntade resultat visade betydelsen av den feminina könsrollen där pojkar som inte identifierade sig med den feminina könsrollens egenskaper visade högre tendenser till sexism, medan flickor som identifierade sig med dessa egenskaper visade mindre tendenser till sexism
