dc.description.abstractThere is a high incidence of rape and party related rape in Norway. To combat this, it has been proposed to aim interventions at rape myth acceptance, since it has been shown to affect rape proclivity. This study examined how a Norwegian translation of the Acceptance of Modern Myths About Sexual Aggression scale performs in a Norwegian student population. 109 male and female participants completed this scale, as well as a Norwegian version of the Illinois Rape Myth Acceptance scale and the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory, where the last was used to assess convergent validity. To access discriminant validity, the Impression Management Subscale of the the Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding was administered. Results indicate that the Acceptance of Modern Myths About Sexual Aggression scale displays the highest convergent validity of the two rape myth scales, while discriminant validity was good for both instruments. It is therefore suggested as a promising new alternative for rape myth acceptance measurements.en_US
