A review of the literature on sex related data employing a variety of measures of assertion indicated that males exhibit greater levels of assertive behavior s than females. The effect of the sex of the confederate upon the assertiveness of the subject was investigated using raters scoring the subjects on five rating scales. The data indicated that males were more assertive than females and that the sex of the confederate did not have a significant effect upon the subject's assertiveness. The implication of the need for assertive training for women and the composition of the training groups is discussed.
