Abstract

The article examines the concept of gender worldview. Its structure and basic characteristics are studied within the framework of three models - traditionally patriarchal, ambivalent and modern. Based on a number of empirical studies conducted from 1996 to 2014, it was observed that gender worldview is holistic, its characteristics interconnected and streamlined. Statistical relationships between structural elements are stable. The concept of gender dominant of consciousness is proposed as one of the main characteristics of the gender worldview. The article demonstrates that its an integral attitude to the position of men and women in the family and society. The empirical material demonstrated that the gender dominant of consciousness specifically manifests itself at each of the three levels of the system - at the level of gender ideals, general gender dispositions and situational attitudes, but at the same time retains the main content for each model - traditional or modern.
