Erchull and Liss Publish Paper

Dr. Mindy Erchull and Dr. Miriam Liss have published a paper in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, now available through early online publication, entitled: Feminists who flaunt it: Exploring the enjoyment of sexualization among young feminist women.

They found that, among self-identified feminist women, enjoying sexualization was related to a mix of traditional and feminist beliefs. Feminists who reported enjoying sexualization felt empowered but were less likely to notice personal experiences of injustice or continued gender inequity.
