Dominator Model

Many conservatives don’t hold as a primary value the ideas of living in a society in which everyone has choices. They believe in a dominator model — that some people should be the deciders and that others should do what the deciders say. Conservatives who are members of the religious right in particular tend to believe that men are the deciders and the women should abide by their decisions.
