An article entitled “Preschool teachers’ attitudes towards children’s gender roles: the effects of sociodemographic characteristics and personal experiences of gender discrimination“ by Silvia Rogošić, Ph.D., Ana Maskalan, Ph.D. and Tomislav Krznar, Ph.D. was published in the journal Problems of education in the 21st century, 78 (3).

The article presents findings of a research aimed at determining the effects of socio-demographic characteristics, religious (non) affiliation and personal experiences of gender discrimination during childhood on the attitudes of preschool teachers towards children’s gender roles and on the frequency of noticing unequal treatment of boys and girls in kindergarten by other preschool teachers. The findings revealed that preschool teachers who have identified themselves as non-religious or religiously non-affiliated and who were brought up in larger cities, with a personal experience of gender discrimination in childhood, noticed more frequently unequal treatment of boys and girls in kindergarten (by other preschool teachers). Among the mentioned variables, experience of gender discrimination during childhood had the strongest effect on noticing unequal treatment of boys and girls in kindergarten, which confirmed the greater awareness of gender discrimination among persons who have experienced such discrimination.
