[en] Social interactions between men and women are subject to lots of influences, be it during an encounter, on the work place, in an intimate relationship, etc. Moreover, whereas they are in a similar situation, men and women react quite differently. Benevolent sexism is one of the factors that affect men-women relationships.
In this dissertation, an experiment was built in order to study the impacts of benevolent sexism on relationships between men and women in a particular frame: the Ultimatum Game. The authors try to know the impacts of benevolent sexism on women’s behaviour during an Ultimatum Game, and that according to the context female participants are in. Female participants played the role of receivers who had to accept or reject offers proposed by photographs of men on the computer screen.
The results of the experiment revealed that the kind of offer (fair, unfair, very unfair), the context (romantic or occupational) and the level of benevolent sexism as well as attractiveness of the photographed male’s faces will influence female participants’ behaviour and their decision-making process in an Ultimatum Game.
The results will then be discussed and suggestions for future research will be put forward.
