Abstract: Previous research on gender and family in Singapore has been characterized by a dominantly state-centric focus, featuring heavy emphases on how Singaporeans have been interpellated as citizen-subjects in a patriarchal, familial order through population policy. Although more recent works have already added valuable insight into how kinship and culturally-specific notions of tradition also shape the gendered organization of families by turning to the attitudes, values, norms and ideals expressed by Singaporeans, important questions still remain as to the ways in which specific family values inform gender role attitudes and how such values and attitudes may themselves vary according to gender and ethnicity. By drawing on original survey data featuring a sample of 211 young adult Chinese and Malay Singaporeans, this exploratory statistical research addresses these key limitations through a systematic evaluation of associations between respondents’ family values and gender role attitudes with ordinary least squares (OLS) regression techniques.
