ABSTRACT
This paper examines the politicol involvement of Greek working women. The study was conducted during the summer and fail of 1982 in Athens, Greece. The sample (N = 296) included women from three occupational groups: professional, sales and factory working women. It is hypothesized that recent social and political changes are inducing Greek women to shed their traditional values and attitudes and to gradually acquire a more modern outlook on society and politics. These changes are measured with a three dimensional empirical model (sociodemographic, associational and attitudinal). The results indicate that traditional values and attitudes are gradually being replaced by modern value and attitudes, especially with regard to gender roles. As a consequence, the new gender roles encourage the political involvement of Greek women.
