The current study examined the relationships between gender ideology and body image in a sample of British female undergraduates. A total of 135 women completed the Body Appreciation Scale (BAS), the Femininity Ideology Scale (FIS), and provided their demographic details. Inter-item correlations showed significant negative correlations between body appreciation scores and the total FIS score, FIS subscales of Purity and Stereotypic Images and Activities, and respondent BMI (rs −.17 to −.26). A multiple linear regression showed that Stereotypic Images and Activities and participant BMI alone explained 10.0% of the variance in body appreciation. These results are discussed in relation to previous studies showing mixed associations between gender role orientation and body image and eating disorders.
