Les femmes et la politique : les attitudes de gauche des 16-34 ans en milieu urbain

Abstract : Sociologists demonstrated a long time ago that the relationship between women and politics depended on their social situation. However, if they concluded that there was no direct relationship between sex and political attitudes, is this not because the attitudes considered were measured almost solely in terms of voting intentions ? On the basis of three scales of left-wing stance : hostility to ministers, radicalism and attachment to public liberties — each measuring a different interest in politics, it is found : 1) that conditions of a nature to bring male and female attitudes closer together vary according to the attitudes considered. The sex factor appears all the more discriminatory the more the indicators used reflect a high degree of interest in politics ; 2) that women are proportionately more likely to behave politically like men, whatever the attitudes studied, when they belong to the privileged classes — whether by virtue of their occupation, that of their husbands or that of their parents. This result can be explained by the fact that these classes are the most willing to take an interest in politics. [Revue française de science politique XXVI (5), octobre 1976. pp. 929-956.]
