In-group bias refers to a group's members preferring each other over those outside of the group. Research clearly show that women have a strong in-group bias.

Rudman & Goodwin (2004) conducted research on gender bias that measured gender preferences without directly asking the participants.[1] Subjects at Purdue and Rutgers participated in computerized tasks that measured automatic attitudes based on how quickly a person categorizes pleasant and unpleasant attributes with each gender. Such a task was done to discover whether people associate pleasant words (good, happy, and sunshine) with women, and unpleasant words (bad, trouble, and pain) with men. This research found that while both women and men have more favourable views of women, women's in-group biases were 4.5 times stronger than those of men.[2][3]
