Abstract:

This study examines the attitudes of male and female students toward the wife, mother, and father roles. Data were collected from a sample of 210 university graduate students in Andhra Pradesh, India, in 1982. Fourteen independent variables are correlated with the three dependent variables for males and females. On a 20-item sex role attitude scale, 12 statements elicited traditional attitudes while six elicited liberal attitudes from the sample. In general, the students expressed traditional attitudes toward the wife role and the father role. Females' attitudes toward the mother role were more liberal than those of males. Stepwise Multiple Regression analysis reveals that, for females, father's education was the significant predictor in explaining the variance in the wife role attitudes and the mother role attitudes while caste was the salient variable in explaining the father role attitude variance. For males, number of brothers explained the greatest variance in the mother role attitudes. In terms of the amount of variance and the number of predictors explaining the variance in the three set role attitudes, the independent variables did not explain the variance as expected.
