Abstract [en]

Purpose: This paper is to investigate the impacts of education, law andfamily factors influence of the gender situation. And what factor hasmost impact to change the sex discrimination situation in China

Design /method/approach: We did a survey at a Chinese university.In total, 96 student informants and 134 staff informants were surveyedin order to get the opinions of the gender discrimination.

Finding: We find education, law and family factors all can influencethe opinion of gender situation.

Conclusion: The relationship between education, family and lawshould be mutual promotion and mutual influence. But from thesurvey’s result, education has the largest influence on gender situation.The second one is family factor, and the law factor has lowest affect.The reason for these results is traditional family culture and the policyof government. Unbalanced policies and the culture of family, both ofthem lead to the differences of influence.

Suggestion for future research: First, the research base only in auniversity, although the sample covers gender, education elements, thegeneralization of the conclusion is still limited due to the sample size.In the future, more informants should be covered to test the hypothesesproposed. Second, the authors only discussed education, law andfamily factors influence of the gender discrimination. Future studiesare encouraged to deeply explore what else factors can influencepeople’s opinions on gender discrimination.

Contribution of the thesis: Owing the lack of empirical research onthe situation of gender discrimination in China, this thesis provides anempirical study on the factors influencing the gender discrimination.Our research results can help Chinese to develop better solution toreduce the gender discrimination.
