Résumé

Studied the effects of female migrants' acculturation strategies on affective evaluation, sexism and social dominance orientation - SDO in France, as a host country, and Romania, as a home country. The same quasi-experimental design was used in both countries: the description of an integrated, assimilated, separated or marginalized female migrant was introduced to participants and then benevolent and hostile sexism, SDO and the degree of acceptance of the migrant were assessed. A control condition was introduced for assessing these attitudes without migrant description. In France, the female migrant was perceived more positively in the integration condition than in the three other ones while assimilation increased SDO. In Romania, the female migrant was perceived more positively and the benevolent sexism was lower when the home culture was maintained than when it was not. Considering that female migrants strategies depend on the acculturation policies of host countries, these results highlight the role of integration policies for improving female migrants' acceptation, relations between communities and relations between genders. This study contributes to the extant literature through two main innovations: 1/it provides information on the influence of female migrants' acculturation strategies on gender relations and SDO, and 2/it documents this influence in a host and a home country using a similar procedure.
