dc.description.abstract Marx claimed that the change of an economic base brings shifts to cultural organizations. Such shifts affect the social relations among different groups such as men and women. In order to ascertain whether gender differences in traditional family values exist in Taiwan, this study used the Taiwan Social Change Survey to identify the relationships associated with gender and traditional family values during periods of economic transition. The logistic regression and OLS regression findings of this study reveal that women are less likely than men to support traditional norms (i.e. coresidence, producing a male heir and gender roles). One very intriguing finding in this study is that younger respondents are more supportive of traditional family values than older ones. These results are defined more extensively in the thesis itself. en_US
