Women's Opposition to Race-Targeted Interventions

Women's Opposition to Race-Targeted Interventions Work on the correlates of opposition to race targeted interventions (ORTI) has neglected gender specific analysis. Given that women themselves have been subject to collective discrimination, this experience could conceivably offset or reduce the effect of standard predictors of ORTI in the case of women. The present study employs multiple regression analysis on national data from the General Social Survey. The results indicate that indicators of all three standard theoretical perspectives (self interest, stratification ideology, and prejudice) tend to be more predictive of female ORTI than male ORTI.

Abstract

Work on the correlates of opposition to race targeted interventions (ORTI) has neglected gender specific analysis. Given that women themselves have been subject to collective discrimination, this experience could conceivably offset or reduce the effect of standard predictors of ORTI in the case of women. The present study employs multiple regression analysis on national data from the General Social Survey. The results indicate that indicators of all three standard theoretical perspectives (self interest, stratification ideology, and prejudice) tend to be more predictive of female ORTI than male ORTI. The hypothesis that the collective experience of discrimination would offset standard predictors of ORTI is not supported. The model explains 36% of the variance of womens' ORTI and 21% of the variance in ORTI among men.
