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.
