The authors regret that the above mentioned article contained an error: The following text on page 905:

Concerning the levels of internal consistency, it must be pointed out that RT measures present, for neutral items, ([alpha] = .85) and for items of both spheres ([alpha] = .91). These data show a satisfactory internal consistency, both taking into account their absolute value and carrying out comparative analyses for these types of tests. Among the most well-known ones, at an international scale, is the Implicit Association Test (IAT). This test shows a value of .80 in the majority of studies (Brunel et al., 2004). When GRT-36 is broken down with respect to spheres and sexes, the values of internal consistency are lowered: domestic female ([alpha] = .70) and work male ([alpha] = .66). Within this breakdown, it should be remarked that the lower alpha values correspond to categories with fewer items.

Should be replaced with:
