Resumen

SALDIVAR GARDUNO, Alicia et al. Gender Roles and Diversity: Validation of a Scale in Different Cultural Contexts. Acta de investigación psicol [online]. 2015, vol.5, n.3, pp.2124-2147. ISSN 2007-4719.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/s2007-4719(16)30005-9.

The characteristics associated with masculinity and femininity are a topic of interest because of the impact that gender roles have on the daily lives of human beings. Mexico is a cultural mosaic in which coexist different traditions that express how roles can be more or less flexible or rigid, depending on the region. This study aimed to understand the behavior of a scale of gender roles applied in different parts of the country, to 1,624 people from four regions (Northeast, North Pacific, Central and Southeast). The scale proved to be culturally sensitive and revealed variations in the perception of the gender roles that correspond with the cultural characteristics of the area of the country from which the data were extracted, but consistent factors, such as the “absence of male emotional expressiveness”, are also observed. Findings are discussed in the light of the current literature, and we make some suggestions to be applied in the education of future men and women, to be more equitable and democratic generations.
