RELIGIOUS TENDENCY AND GENDER ROLES: PREDICTORS OF THE ATTITUDES TOWARD WOMEN’S WORK ROLES?
Abstract:The purpose of this study was to investigate if religious tendency and gender roles predicted attitudes of Turkish university students towards women's work roles. The study was conducted with 138 students from the Educational Sciences faculty of Ankara University. The Attitude Towards Women's Work Roles Scale (Kuzgun & Sevin, 2004), Religious Tendency Scale (Onay, 1997, 2002), and Bem Sex-Role Inventory (Bem, 1981) were the tools employed in order to collect data. The findings revealed that the thought dimension of religious tendency, feminine and androgynous gender roles significantly predicted attitudes towards women's work roles.
