Abstract ―​

Despite ongoing societal pressure to change traditional gender roles, inequality persists, exerting a substantial influence on various aspects of our society, including actions, lifestyles, occupations, and social duties. Gender inequality remains a prevalent issue globally and demands direct attention aimed at challenging and reshaping ingrained gender roles. In the exploration and evaluation of Filipino perceptions and perspectives regarding assigned gender roles in Philippine society, a descriptive correlational design was employed. The study collected data from random residents in Mandaluyong City, with the primary objective of scrutinizing the relationship between respondents' selected demographic profiles and their acceptance and attitudes toward the evolving gender roles in the Philippines. The findings revealed significant correlations between respondents' age, nature of work, and educational attainment with their level of acceptance. Likewise, when examining the association between age and respondents' attitudes toward gender roles, a noteworthy relationship emerged. Additionally, a robust and significant association between acceptance and attitude was identified, highlighting that positive attitudes were linked to a higher acceptance of evolving gender roles. This underscores the complex interplay of factors shaping societal perspectives on gender roles and emphasizes the need for targeted efforts to address and overcome persistent gender inequality.
