Our aim was also to measure the strength of this association when two other significant and well-studied sources of sexism, television exposure and religiosity, were also included in a multivariate model. A representative sample of French youth aged 11—19 years completed a survey measuring weekly video game and television exposure, religiosity, and sexist attitudes toward women.
