Changes in Gender Attitudes: The Influence of Community Group Experiences on Individual Gender Related Attitudes

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study examines changes in selected gender roles and family related attitudes in a non-Western setting that has undergone much structural and ideational change. In particular, study examines the influence of a number of new, non-family experiences that have an effect on attitudinal changes. In this setting, attitudes toward early marriages for girls, widow remarriage for young women, daughter-in-law obedience, and decision making within the household each shape gender differences in life experiences and life outcomes. Panel data from two waves of individual surveys from Nepal is used to examine the influence of the experience of participation in community groups, on changes in the attitudes, while using the theoretical framework of the family mode of social organization and ideational influences. The results reveal a strong, positive and statistically significant effect of new experiences of community group participation on changes in gender attitudes. These effects remain independent of other key sources of variation in life experiences that have been known to influence changes in attitudes. This suggests the potential of gender attitudes to be associated with multiple experiences in non-Western settings when new ways of structures, roles, ideas and relationships are introduced to men and women.
