A short version of the Attitudes toward Women Scale (AWS)
A short (25-item) version of the Spence-Helmreich (1972) Attitudes toward Women Scale (AWS) is presented. Correlations between scores on the short and the full (55-item) version for groups of male and female students and groups of their parents were.95 or above. The results of a factor analysis and part-whole correlations also indicated the similarity of the two forms. Normative data for the student and parent samples are described.
