Conformity to Feminine Gender Norms in the Spanish Population
Abstract:In this study, the aim was to describe the adaptation of the Conformity to Feminine Norms Inventory (CFNI; Mahalik et al., 2005) for the Spanish population. The CFNI is used to assess women's conformity to feminine norms in the United States of America, from a multidimensional perspective. The protocol of the International Test Commission was followed when adapting the inventory. The questionnaire was administered to 780 Spanish women between 18 and 59 years of age. Factor analysis revealed a similar profile to that obtained in the USA and, although it is different in some aspects, it supports the structure proposed by the authors. The reliability data (alpha coefficient of the total scale of .87) also confirm the validity of the CFNI for use in the Spanish population.
