Analysis of Gender Differences in the Structure of Values of Students in the Republic of Sakha: The Case of Yakutsk State University.
Melnikova, Nadezhda M.
Northern Review, n22 p70-76 Win 2000
A study examined gender differences in values in relation to ongoing educational changes in Russia. Surveys of 53 male and 64 female university students in Yakutia (northeast Russia) indicated persistent traditional gender stereotypes, except that females appreciated education more than males. This could result in family conflicts, since women do not traditionally combine family and career. (TD)
