Erchull & Liss Publish in Gender Issues

Dr. Mindy Erchull, associate professor of psychology, and Dr. Miriam Liss, professor of psychology, have published a paper in the journal Gender Issues.  The paper is entitled “Exploring the Concept of Perceived Female Sexual Empowerment: Development and Validation of the Sex is Power Scale”.

This paper is comprised of a series of three studies detailing the development of the Sex is Power Scale (SIPS).  This measure can be used to assess whether women view their sexuality as a source of personal power as well as whether they believe that women in general use sexuality as a source of power over men.
