Purpose: This study was conducted to investigate the attitudes of three generations of women regarding gender roles. Designs and Methods: In this study, 58 female students, their mothers, and grandmothers participated. Percentages and means, χ2 test, Kruskal Wallis test, and multiple regression analysis were used to analyze the data. Findings: The findings obtained in this study showed that 91.5% of the students, 89.8% of the mothers, and 84.6% of the grandmothers had an egalitarian attitude regarding gender roles. The egalitarian attitudes of students were affected onefold by the attitudes of mothers, whereas grandmothers' attitudes affected the attitudes of students 1.1 times. These two variables explain 48% of the status of having egalitarian attitudes of the students. Practical Implications: Students had more traditional attitudes regarding gender roles than their mothers and grandmothers.
