ABSTRACT

This study, employing Rasch analysis, aimed at evaluating the psychometric properties of Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (ASI) using an Indian sample of 245 participants. ASI was originally developed by Peter Glick and Susan Fiske in 1996 and has since been used in many research studies measuring hostile and benevolent sexism across cultures. Due to a lack of its psychometric validation on Indian sample, it has not been used in Indian researches. In the present work, the results of Rasch analysis indicated the appropriateness of Ambivalent Sexism Inventory among Indian population. Implications of the findings are briefly discussed.
