Attitudes Towards Gender Roles and Gender Role Behaviour Among Urban, Rural, and Farm Populations in Slovenia

Document Description
Historically, researchers from various social disciplines (sociologists, geographers, demographers and others) have observed important differences between urban and rural populations in many parts of today's developed countries. Compared with the urban residents, people living in rural areas generally expressed more conservative political and religious attitudes, were more likely to follow traditional values, and revealed less "modem" behavioural pattems (more traditional family structure and living arrangements, higher fertility, lower level of education). Classic sociological theories (Durkheim. Tonnies, Marx, Simmel) utilising bipolar dichotomies were employed to understand these urban/rural differences. These theories were primarily developed to explain dissimilarities between simple societies and more complex ones. While this theoretical tradition contributed importantly to the understanding of these differences, the volume of studies dealing with the dichotomy urban/ rural has declined in recent decades. It is assumed that due to mass culture, mass communication, improved transportation, globalisation of economies and markets, many of historic distinctions between urban and rural societies have became insignificant (Albrecht and Albrecht 1996). However, the dichotomy urban/mral is still a key variable in many demographic and other social sciences' investigations (e.g,. Camarero Rioja et.al. 2001, Bonner 1997).
