This article is an attempt to study the impact of socio-economic factors affecting women's attitudes from a sociological point of view. The data of this research was collected by using a questionnaire.
A sample of 384 women aged 25-54 from Shiraz city, Iran were included in this study.
To explain gender inequality, some theoretical approaches such as "Conflict", "Resources" and "Collins" model have been applied. Gender inequality was considered in five different areas such as: social participation of women, the status of women in the family and lab our market, civil and legal rights of women and gender stereotyping.
The result of research show that there is a significant relationship between independent variables (women's education, women's income, father's and mother's education, husbands' income, education of parents and mother's employment status) and dependent variable (gender inequality).
The results also indicate that the most important variables are women's education, mother's education, employment status and the type of women's jobs and these 5 variables together can explain 57/9 present of the variance of data.
