Men's Gender Socialization and Masculinity Effect on Men's Expressed Fear of Crime
The purpose of this study was to investigate if men's gender socialization and conformity to masculinity predict their expression of fear of crime. Through multiple measures, this study investigated men's gender role conflict, conformity to masculinity, and fear of victimization to determine if these factors are related to men's expression or lack thereof of crime. It hypothesized that race, age, higher conformity to masculine norms, and less gender role conflict relate to less expressed fear of crime. Forward Stepwise statistical analysis provided support for race and restrictive emotionality relating to expressed fear of crime.
