This paper investigates the relationship between attachment styles and sexist attitudes of Pakistani adults. The sample includes 100 Pakistani individuals, comprising of both males and females, who were recruited through online Google Forms. This research is the first of its kind to collect data on attachment styles and sexist attitudes specifically within the Pakistani context. The measurement scales used were the Adult Attachment Questionnaire (AAQ) and Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (ASI.) Through a statistical analysis which aimed to look for significance, no significant relation was found between attachment styles and sexist attitudes. The findings of this study contribute to understanding how attachment styles may not be the only influence on individuals’ attitudes toward sexism within the Pakistani cultural context which does not support previous findings, specifically for hostile sexism with attachment styles. Furthermore, the research fills a significant gap in the existing literature by providing insights into the relationship. The results also allow future research to be suggested and potential gaps that could be further investigated.
