Men's collective action willingness: Testing different theoretical models of protesting gender inequality for women and men
The present study compares models of collective action to reduce gender inequality. The dual pathway model argues that identification with the disadvantaged group along with anger and group efficacy predict collective action. Social dominance theory argues that general support for intergroup equality and rejecting sexist beliefs in particular motivate collective action. Structural equation modeling revealed that both models were supported but were moderated by gender. Men's support for equality increased opposition to sexism, which was associated with collective action willingness, and women's ingroup identification predicted anger and group efficacy, which predicted collective action willingness. In all, the present study demonstrates the utility of theoretical pluralism and has implications for programs and interventions that seek to encourage women and men to engage in collective action.
