Principal Investigator(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research


Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates gender role attitudes in Japan and how they vary across different segments of the population. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include whether men and women in Japan hold different attitudes about women's role in the family and the workplace, whether gender role attitudes vary by age or by marital status, how gender role attitudes have changed over time, and how Japanese gender role attitudes compare to those in the United States.
