We propose that rewarding women who confront sexism is critical to increasing future confrontations, and that a bystander's silence feels as discouraging as a negative response to confronters. Two studies revealed that participants felt comparably isolated with silent bystanders to when bystanders discouraged them, and more isolated with silent bystanders than when bystanders encouraged them.
