This study reports the information obtained from 171 married women and their husbands in 34 villages of the provincial centre and other counties of the province of Tokat by means of a survey. The social gender analysis has allowed eliciting judgments regarding the social gender roles of women dealing with agricultural activities from the viewpoints of males and females. In the analysis of the roles played by women in the agricultural activities and in the family life, the considerations by males and females on the roles of women have been found to be different. The approach of the males towards the roles of women is based on traditional values. On the other hand, the females have been found to adopt more equalitarian, more democratic and more actively participatory roles both in the context of agricultural activities and in the family life.
