Handbook of Management Scales/Gender equality
Gender equality (CR = 0.75)[edit | edit source]
Description[edit | edit source]
Hofstede's five cultural factors are reconceptualized as ten personal cultural orientations: independence, interdependence, power, social inequality, masculinity, gender equality, risk aversion, ambiguity intolerance, tradition, and prudence. A new 40-item scale is developed to measure these personal cultural orientations. Much effort has been invested in ensuring validity, reliability, and cross-cultural measurement equivalence of the new scale.
Definition[edit | edit source]
Gender equality is the extent to which people perceive men and women as equal in terms of social roles, capabilities, rights, and responsibilities.
