SIERRA, JUAN CARLOS; DELGADO-DOMINGUEZ, CARLOS J  e  GUTIERREZ-QUINTANILLA, JOSÉ RICARDO. RAPE SUPPORTIVE ATTITUDE SCALE: FIRST EVIDENCE ON ITS RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY IN THE SALVADORIAN SAMPLES. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.3, pp.359-548. ISSN 1657-9267.

The tolerant attitudes towards sexual violence on women are important risk factor which should be considered while explaining this type of aggressive behaviour. One of the instruments to evaluate these attitudes is Rape Supportive Attitude Scale (RSAS) by Lottes. The scale has showed good indexes of reliability and validity in both American and Spanish university students. The purpose of the study is to explore the psychometric characteristics in El Salvador as it has been applied together with the Double Standard Scale by Caron, Davis, Haltelman and Stickle (1993) and Crowne and Marlowe (1960) Social Desirability Scale in two samples which consisted of 505 and 1499 students, respectively. The results indicate that the one-dimensional structure of the scale stays stable in the two samples reaching the coefficients of internal consistence higher than .80, although it includes two items which requires to be reviewed in future studies. Concerning the validity, the RSAS differentiates men and women in these types of attitudes and shows significant positive correlation with double sexual standard.
