Graduation date: 1998The purpose of this investigation is to explore gender role attitudes among Thai\ud college students and to determine whether differences in gender role attitudes among\ud Thai college students are related to the sex of students, college major and family\ud structure. To investigate this problem a Gender Role Attitude Inventory is developed\ud and three hypothesis are developed. Research participants include 300\ud junior/undergraduate college students at Kasetsart University in Bangkok, Thailand.\ud Frequencies and descriptive statistics are used to analyze the sample and\ud inferential statistics are used to interpret the data and to answer the research question\ud posed. The group West is used to compare the mean difference of students' gender role\ud attitude scores between male and female students, between female students who\ud participate in traditional feminine college majors and those who are involved in\ud nontraditional college majors, and between students who grew up in families where both\ud parents worked outside the home and those who were raised in families where fathers\ud were employed and mothers did not work outside the home.\ud The results show that female students expressed significantly more egalitarian\ud gender role attitudes than male students. Female students with nontraditional majors\ud tend to demonstrate more egalitarian gender role attitudes than those with traditional\ud majors. Students from dual-earner families, where both father and mother worked\ud outside the home, are shown to have higher levels of egalitarian gender role attitudes as\ud compare to students from single-earner families, where fathers were employed outside\ud the home and mothers were not employed in wage labor
