The study examined young men's perception, understanding and evaluation of gender roles, women's rising status, and changing gender and sexual relationships. With a focus on male university students, it also investigated what factors might be shaping the gendered attitudes of young, educated men. Moreover, it assessed whether taking gender-related courses or programmes makes a difference in young men's understanding of gender roles and masculinity.
