    Abstract

    The focus of this thesis falls on the subjective dimension of gender equality, as translated into attitudes towards gender roles in the private and public spheres of life. Studying and understanding attitudes towards gender roles is relevant due to their broader implications for democratization, political participation, leadership, fertility, educational achievements, gender roles and division of labour. Based on the assumption that attitudes towards gender roles can impact important social phenomena, this dissertation aims to investigate the institutional, cultural and individual factors that lead to attitudinal gender equality. In other words, it considers what shapes these attitudes as well as how and why they change. These general questions are formulated in a cross-national or longitudinal context. Findings show important relationships between individual and macro level factors on the one hand and attitudes towards gender roles on the other hand, and detail the nature of these connections.
