Abstract

We found that perceived “common fate” (mutually-experienced discrimination) influenced women’s labeling of discriminatory treatment in front of another women. Women who received sexist test feedback attributed their experience more to discrimination than to ability in front of another women (rather than privately) who had the same “sexist” (versus different) evaluator.
