This study aimed to determine the role of social dominance orientation and perceived scarcity of the opposite sex in predicting attitudes toward risks on Indonesian Woman Migrant Workers (IWMW) that will work abroad. The design used for this study was quantitative non-experimental and predictive correlational by using psychological scales as the measuring instrument. This study involved 258 unmarried IWMW (Mage = 20.089 years old; SDage = 5.142 years) fostered by National Agency for the Placement and Protection of IWMW (BNP2TKI) and those in the shelters. Result of the study shows that social dominance orientation and perceived scarcity of the opposite sex can predict attitudes toward risks on IWMW (R2 = 0.343). Social dominance orientation is able to positively predict attitudes toward risks (β = 0.618; p < 0.01) and perception of the number of opposite sex is able to negatively predict attitudes toward risks (β = -0.159; p < 0.01).
