Abstract

This article expands the work of Cohen, McCreary and Schutts (2017) by devising, testing and validating a scale that measures five distinct schema of sisterhood. The scale development process resulted in a 24-item measure made up of five correlated dimensions: shared social experiences, belonging, support and encouragement, accountability, and common purpose. The five-factor model was stable across multiple samples. The construct validity of the sisterhood scale, including convergent and discriminant validity was also demonstrated.
