The purpose of this study was to assess the probability that European American men and women would intervene when they observed prejudicial expressions and/or discriminatory acts based on race, sex, sexual orientation and/or religion. The participants were also asked how they felt after intervening (or failing to intervene). Significantly more women than men intervened when the prejudice was based on sexism, heterosexism and religious intolerance. More men than women intervened when the insult was based on race. Men's and women's rationale for intervention (and failing to intervene) differed.
