Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the opinions of African-Americans on gender roles. African-American college students (N=11) were interviewed on the extent to which they believe that women and men are assigned different roles in their respective communities. The development of these gender roles was also addressed during the research. The findings indicate that the respondents held similar views as to what role each gender has accepted in their neighborhoods. It was also found that the participants believe that these gender roles are currently in the process of evolving. Previous literature on African-American gender roles is presented before the results are discussed. The implications of the findings are also explored, and the research is analyzed using the Africana Womanist orientation.
