In this context, the study population consisted of the academicians working at Tokat Gaziosmanpaşa University. The data were obtained by applying the socio-demographic information form, the Gender Perception Scale, the Traditional Beliefs on Family and Marriage Scale and the Patriarchal Beliefs on Marriage Scale to academicians working at various departments. The data were tested by independent samples t-test for two groups and one-way analysis of variance.
