03:26 Complementary gender differentiation What is appealing about this to both sexes? The addition of the benevolence component is a major contribution because it addresses the interdependency that men and women share. A central argument to ambivalent sexism rests on women’s dyadic power. Dyadic power is the power that women gain from men’s dependency on women in interpersonal relationships; basically dyadic power is the idea that “women, you can’t live without ‘em.” This complex interdependency between the two genders supports that even from the perspective of an extreme sexist; women are not normally viewed in a completely hostile manner What is the problem with this? 1. Pressure on men that they need to make more $, that they shouldn’t stay home with the children, etc… 2. Sexism either way still perpetuates the situation; it doesn’t challenge the status quote. 3. Maintains the status quote.
