This is an interactive version of the Feminist Perspectives Scale, a measure of feminist and gender attitudes.

Feminism is a group of political movements broadly representing women's interests. Feminist identity has been a popular research topic in Women's Studies and social psychology and a variety of different frameworks and instruments have been developed trying to organize what it means to be a feminist. The Feminist Perspectives Scale developed by Nancy M. Henley and colleagues in 1998 measures five types of feminism that they thought have typically been distinguished from one and other in the study of feminism in the United States, as well as a generic type of anti-feminism. The scales of the FPS are liberal feminism, radical feminism, socialist feminism, cultural feminism, womanism/WOC, and conservatism.

The test consists of 60 statements that must be rated by how you view them on the scale: (1) disagree (2) slightly disagree (3) neutral (4) slightly agree (5) agree. Each item should be responded to quickly without over-thinking. The test should take most people not more than six minutes.
