The purpose of the present study was to examine the relationship between benevolent sexism and gender-role consciousness. This study focused on the three sources of benevolent sexism: paternalism/maternalism, complementary gender differentiation, and heterosexual intimacy. Forty university students completed a questionnaire which consists of benevolent sexism (ASI: Ambivalent Sexism Inventory or AMI: Ambivalent toward Men Inventory) and gender-role consciousness (M-H-F Scale). The main results were as follows: (1) Masculinity promoted benevolent sexism in both of male and female; (2) There was no influence of gender-role consciousness on complementary gender differentiation of men nor maternalism of female; (3) However, I found that the reliability of the three sources of ASI or AMI by α coefficients was low.
