About the Author

Julia Becker is a professor of social psychology at the University of Osnabrueck (Germany). Her research focuses on ways to explain why disadvantaged group members tolerate societal systems that produce social and economic inequality and how legitimizing ideologies (such as sexism) help to maintain unequal status relations. Building on this, she is interested in people's motivation in activism for social change.

Matthew J. Zawadzki is a post-doctoral scholar in the Department of Biobehavioral Health at The Pennsylvania State University. His research investigates how psychological processes affect health with a focus on creating, testing, and implementing interventions to improve well-being.

Stephanie A. Shields is Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies at The Pennsylvania State. Her research is at the intersection of human emotion, gender, and feminist psychology. Her current work focuses on development and testing of WAGES, perception of emotion regulation in others, and theoretical and methodological issues relevant to applying intersectionality theory in psychological research.
