Abstract: 

It is well-documented in theory and in research that evaluative attitudes predict subsequent behaviour, however the association of evaluative attitudes and sexually aggressive behaviour have been scarcely researched. The given research investigated the association of evaluative attitudes of sexual aggression towards women and the perpetration of sexual aggression towards women using a newer version of an evaluative attitudes of sexual aggression towards women measure (the EASAW). EASAW mean scores of those with a history of sexual violence towards women and those without a history of sexual violence towards women were compared, with no significant differences and small effect sizes found. Future research should continue to investigate this relationship that address shortcomings of this study, such as: more diverse samples and experimental manipulation.
