Psychologists show great interest in the study of common ideas about men and women in society. These ideas include traditional masculinity ideology. To measure this ideology, researchers use questionnaires. To date, three Russian-language inventories are designed to study this construct: The Male Role Norms Inventory-Revised, The Male Attitude Norms Inventory-II, and The Russian Male Role Norms Inventory. However, there has been insufficient evidence in the scientific literature to demonstrate the structural validity of these questionnaires. In the course of our research, we examined the factor structure of the full and short versions of each inventory. A number of 1901 of individuals participated in the study (51% of cisgender women, 49% of cisgender men; age range from 17 to 77 years old). Respondents filled out one of the three inventories for measuring traditional masculinity ideology. During the analysis, three factor models were tested. According to the results the short Russian-language version of the Male Role Norms inventory can be used to measure traditional masculinity ideology. At the same time, the Norms of Male Behavior and the Russian Norms of Male Behavior inventories need to be revised and further tested.

Keywords: masculinity norms, traditional masculinity, Male Role Norms Inventory, Male Attitude Norms Inventory, Russian Male Norms Inventory
