Abstract: 

Today psychologists look at the culture as traditional and communicated meanings and practices. They focus on how these meanings and practices are shaping the individual identity. The aim of the present study was understanding that how ethnicity and gender can influence the gender role characteristics and stereotypes of female and male students of two ethnic groups (Persian and Kurdish) of Iran. Bern sex role inventory- Persian form- and a general demographic questionnaire were administered. The data were gathered randomly from 156 Kurdish and Persian female and male students. Results showed that there were no differences between two groups of female students in gender role stereotypes. But there were significant differences between two ethnic groups of male students according to femininity (t=2.5) and four different gender role stereotypes (c2= 7.1). Data also showed that both ethnic groups evaluated masculine traits more positive than feminine traits. Results had been discussed on different theoretical bases about femininity and masculinity.
