[[abstract]]In the past, the studies concerning gender role in Taiwan primarily discuss from the patriarchy view point, seldom from class culture about ones gender identity and activities. However, in most of the researches, we can find different class cultures may contribute different gender codes. And students from different classes may have different gender worlds. If students’ interactions in school really express the difference of class culture, then is have highly relationship with what they do and what they experience in the home will be possible? In the other words, maybe students’ experiences and interactions different from class to class, and all of these affect the gender codes, gender interactions and gender relationships of the students. Therefore, this study is designed to explore the gender role perspectives of the students and their parents in different class, and to know the gender interactions and relationships in their family. To fulfill the above purpose, this study applies qualitative approaches, such as semi-structured interview and other paper documents, to collect data from twenty- two students belonging working class and middle-upper class. The major findings are as follows: 1. The gender perspectives of working class are stereotyped than middle-upper class. 2. The gender perspectives of the parents in working class emphasize gender-divided, and the parents in middle-upper class are more equal. 3. The gender interactions in working class families are more indifferent and unsupportable than middle-upper class. 4. The gender relationships in working class families are more patriarchy, and more democratic in middle-upper class.
