The data was collected from 160 female participantscategorically divided into four age groups, i.e., Teens(16-18yrs), Young Adults(19-30yrs), Adults(31-49yrs), and Old-Aged females(50-65yrs), and also into two groups based ontheirmarital status, i.e., unmarried and married. The questionnaires used were the InternalizedMisogyny Scale (IMS) developed by Piggott (2004), Ambivalent SexismInventory(ASI)developed by Glick & Fiske (1996), Body Surveillance sub-scale of the ObjectifiedBodyConsciousness Scale by McKinley & Hyde (1996), and Support for Traditional Gender RolesbyC. Wegs et al. (2016). Descriptive statistics, correlation, regression, independent samplet-test and MANOVA were used to analyze the data. The results revealed that Age, Sexism, Traditional Gender Roles and Body Surveillance are correlated to Internalized Misogyny. There wasasignificant difference in Internalized Misogyny among the four age groups; a significant difference in Body Surveillance among the four age groups; a significant difference inBodySurveillance between unmarried and married females; and a significant difference in Traditional Gender Roles between unmarried and married females
