Reviewing the literature there are certainly several inventories to measure gender stereotype values as, for example, the Adjective Check List (ACL; Williams & Bennett, 1975), the Sex-Role Stereotype Questionnaire (Rosenkrantz et al., 1968), the Personal Attributes Questionnaire (PAQ, Spence, Helmreich & Stapp, 1974; Runge et al., 1981), the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI; Bem, 1974; Schneider-Düker & Kohler, 1988), the Modern Sexism Scale (Swim et al., 1995), the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory (Glick & Fiske, 1996), the Skala zur Messung der normativen Geschlechtsrollen-Orientierung (GRO-Skala; Krampen, 1979, 1983) to name but a few. However, as equally clearly can be seen, these instruments appear a bit outdated to employ, besides they often are based on the Anglo-American culture.

Can anyone help me out with a hint on a more contemporary gender stereotype questionnaire which refers to Germany or central Europe respectively? An inventory already edited for computer administration would be ideal.

(I apologise to Seanny123 as he had kindly revised this question once but it got lost then owing to an accidental log out.)
