dc.description.abstract Attitudes of machismo are essential components of Costa Rican culture and traditions. This study examines how these attitudes manifest themselves in Costa Ricans' opinions regarding various gender role issues. Male and female Costa Ricans, both urban and rural, between the ages of 5 and 10, 15 and 25, and 60 plus were asked questions regarding gender role issues. The age category of children ages 5 to 10 revealed the least machismo as the age category of adolescents ages 15 to 25 revealed the most. Rural and urban localities appeared to make no difference. Males revealed more attitudes of machismo than did females but not significantly more overall.
