The present study examined the mediating effects of ambivalent sexism (hostile and benevolent) in the relationship between sex roleorientation (masculinity and femininity) and gender stereotypes (dominance and assertiveness) in college students. The variables weremeasured using the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI), the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (ASI), and the Attitudes toward Gender Stereotypesin Romantic Relationships Scale (AGSRRS). These inventories were administered to 250 undergraduate students at Istanbul University inIstanbul and Suleyman Demirel University in Isparta, Turkey. Results indicate that benevolent sexism mediates the relationship betweenhostile sexism and male dominance. Benevolent sexism also mediates femininity and male dominance, as well as femininity and maleassertiveness. Hostile sexism was mediated only between the masculine personality trait and benevolent sexism. The present findingsexpand the literature on sex role orientation by revealing evidence that masculine and feminine individuals experience ambivalent sexismdistinctively. The results are discussed in terms of the assumptions of sex role orientation, ambivalent sexism, and gender stereotypes.
