Attitudes toward Women in Adolescent Korean Sample.
Since the 1960s Korean society has been influenced by a variety of Western cultures, resulting in considerable changes in the roles assumed by women, especially related to their increasing employment. However, less than 3% of all managers or administrators are women. The Attitudes Toward Women scale and questionnaires concerning other gender-related variables (e.g., smoking, drinking, dating, sex) were administered to 833 adolescent Koreans (420 males and 413 females) who ranged in age from 15 to 23 years. The sex variable was found to be the dominant explanatory variable for the attitudes toward women. Results suggest that male Korean adolescents in the 1990s still hold very traditional views concerning the rights and roles of women. (EMK)
