Study 1 indicates that men tend to display still stereotypes in society. In study 2, the eight domains related to masculinity such as achievement, rationality, objectification of sex, self-reliance, emotional restriction, avoidance of femininity, focus on toughness and aggression, and homophobia was grounded to ask the relevant questions to participants. Interestingly, married men have slightly changed the views in emotional restriction, avoidance of femininity, dominance of economy and being strong on psychology. Single men generally do not have any difficulties in showing their feelings. In the domain of achievement, masculinity still remains with the culture. Additionally, women’s education levels and active participation in life rise, their self-confidence rises. In light of interviews, cultural teaching in Turkish society indicates that professions and responsibilities of gender have been beginning to react differently, even though there is a belief that equality in working should be changeable for gender. The research discussed the depth of gender roles respectively.
